From the Back Seat of a P-51 Mustang

POST #    2968

Last Friday, I was fortunate enough to head out to Long Island to check out The Horsemen and their P-51 Mustangs. Not only did I get to walk around and take pictures of the airplanes themselves, but I got to go up in one of them for a short flight. Ed Shipley took me out over South Oyster Bay for a couple of rolls (one regular and one four point) and a loop. He also let me take the control for another roll.

I'm happy to say that I didn't throw up in the back seat, despite it being my first time in a non-commercial airplane. It was certainly the experience of a lifetime.
