Pictures & Videos of Past Weeks

Broadcast on TV in as many as 217 countries, the Tournament of Roses Parade in Pasadena, California is a world famous New Years celebration event.

The parade is held every year on January 1, unless the date falls on a Sunday. If New Years Day falls on a Sunday the parade is held on January 2.

These spectacular pictures were taken by the world famous professional aerial photographer Mark Holtzman of West Coast Aerial Photography, Inc. Mark is also an experienced pilot, flying the airplane he uses to shoot his own photographs. They were taken above Colorado Boulevard, during and above the United States Air Force (USAF)  B2 fly-by. Military airplane low-passes along the entire Colorado Boulevard stretch in Pasadena always mark the official start of the parade every year, at 8 a.m.  Mark has generously granted us permission to display his pictures on Captain Jetson, to share with you. You can contact Mark by clicking his link in red above.
