After 10 years, the hallowed ground of Edwards opens its doors to the public!

This is a short and sweet trip to hit the action.

Our USA West Coast EWs are legendary trips and this will be a much-shorter version in order to maximise the opportunities out there, whilst ensuring the time spent away is kept to a minimum.

We go out, hit the event and undertake some exhilarating shoots either side of it, and then come home! Awesome.

Please note that there is no Foreign National access permitted to Edwards on any other day except Saturday & Sunday.

Itinerary

Provisional itinerary as follows...

Please note that there is no Foreign National access permitted to Edwards on any other day except Saturday & Sunday.

Thursday 13th October

Time to head to the desert! We have secured an excellent transatlantic flight rate and this departs from LHR with British Airways at 0945hrs and lands into LAX at 1300hrs. We strongly recommend taking advantage of this group rate (see below)! However, if you are meeting us in the USA, you will need to be at LAX for 1400hrs.

We then head straight into the action with the first photography overflights of LAX International Airport this afternoon. This is one of those bucket list photography sessions... An open door helicopter over the top of one of the world's busiest airports. Incredible. This is an additional bolt-on as you desire, and the cost works out at around $350 each for two people (or $700 solo), paid direct to the operator before you fly.

After the round of flights is complete, we head to Lancaster in the Mojave desert, ready for more!

Friday 14th October

Today we venture to Palmdale for a private visit into the Joe Davis Heritage Air Park (closed to general admission) and the Blackbird Air Park (also appointment only).

There will also be time to spend at the end of Palmdale's very special runway to see if there's any cool, strange and mysterious shapes on approach.

We then head out on a short Californian road trip to Victorville for the afternoon for some breathtaking air-to-ground photography (cost unknown at this time, paid in-country). This desert storage Boneyard – the former George AFB – is home to the Southern California Logistics Airport and has a mass of stored airliners. Some are baking in the desert graveyard, some seeing another lease of life and being returned to operations. The photography is exhilarating!

Saturday 15th October

The 2022 Aerospace Valley Airshow, held at the almighty halls of Edwards AFB, California. There can be few other bases in the world that evoke such aerospace history and the chance to return - after a 10-year hiatus - is not to be missed. The show itself is as varied as you can possibly get in the USA with an excellent flying display full of regular acts and rare gems, plus a static display on tis hallowed ground and... all that swag. We are working direct with the organisers in regard to securing Enhanced Photography Passes for our group, complete with dedicated Photo Pit and early access.

Sunday 16th October  

A second day at Edwards AFB, taking it all in and enjoying different locations from which to shoot the action.

Monday 17th October

We return to LAX in the early morning and undertake a second batch of overflights at LAX or similar activities, before flying home later that afternoon. We depart at 1540hrs (returning into London Heathrow at 1005hrs the next day).

Short and (very) sweet!

The cost without flights from London (meeting us in LAX airport and being dropped at LAX airport around our flight times) is £1195.

The cost including return flights with British Airways out of LHR is £1690.

In-country flights costs (LAX and Victorville) are additional and optional.
