December 22 2020, Palm Springs, CA: The Palm Springs Air Museum will provide a warbird fly over of our Valley Hospitals in recognition of the vital work our medical workers are providing at this critical time starting at 12 noon on Thursday, Christmas Eve Day, December 24. Santa will be leaving the Valley on Christmas Eve and his Elves’ Aviation Department has provided a Gazelle SA 341 Scout Helicopter for his departure while his Reindeer rest for their Christmas visit.
In addition, Santa will be making a donation of twenty-five cases of turkeys to FIND Food Bank to be distributed to those in need. “Our medical workers are serving on the front line of this battle with Covid19. The Palm Springs Air Museum and Santa want to do everything possible to bring whatever holiday cheer we can to them, to help boost their spirits. It’s the least we can do to thank them, we are truly grateful,” says Palm Springs Air Museum Vice Chairman of the Board Fred Bell.
The Palm Springs Air Museum contains over 71 vintage airframes from World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War contained in 86,000 square feet of open hangars and on the tarmac. Additional displays and memorabilia are located throughout the hangar facilities. Currently closed due to Covid19, Giftshop hours for special gifts are 10 am to 5 pm. The Giftshop will be closed on Christmas Day, and the Museum will reopen as an Open Air Museum on Saturday, December 26.
