I took a flight on a P-51 C

To celebrate ten years of making video documentaries about the men of the 354th Fighter Group, I decided to take a flight in a P-51 !

What a wonderful experience ! I was even able to steer the plane for awhile. The pilot took me through some aerial maneuvers - quite fun !







Here are some videos from the flight !

I just learned the sad news of Ralph Brown's passing. He was the 99 year old man who was a fighter pilot in WWII who I met and interviewed last August. He was still active and quite an inspiration to me. Rest in Peace, Ralph.
