I traveled to the Antelope Valley twice in April 2003 to photograph the wildflower bloom.
The California Poppies were starting to come up in profusion in the Antelope Valley.
Air Force Plant 42 in Palmdale is home to Blackbird Airpark and the Joe Davies Heritage Airpark at Air Force Plant 42. Both airparks are located on Avenue P, adjacent to 25th Street East. Blackbird Airpark is the only place where you can see an SR-71A, an A-12, and a D-21 drone together. There will eventually be over 40 airplanes on display at the Joe Davies Heritage Airpark.
The Antelope Valley has a rich aviation heritage. Air Force Plant 42 has been the site of the first flights of many important and novel aircraft. Aircraft flying out of Edwards Air Force Base are often seen in the skies overhead. There are several places where you can see vintage airplanes displayed in the Antelope Valley.
Although it was late in the season there was a spectacular Poppy bloom in the Antelope Valley.
