Arguably the best fighter produced in WWII (although not my favorite).
I would not have guessed you could get 20 of them in the same place at the same time.
Very cool.

Thanks

As a kid I modeled WWI and WWII aircraft. Then my friends got into jets. Sorry...just not my bag. Favorites was the Albatross (#1 for me), BF109, and P-40...but there are several others.

Thanks for posting. That was a very enjoyable video to watch . Additionally, the P38 (my favorite) came up on U tube after the P51. Not into airplanes anymore, but was fun to watch.

So I made that mostly P-51Ds, with a handful of -H (lightweights) and a couple of -B or -C models.

Thanks for posting that David. P-51 owners (or any WWII aircraft for that matter) must be a pretty exclusive club but what a rush it must be too, especially getting to show them off like that.

I can put my hands on 2 P51's 2 t-6 trainers and a spitfire most days. They are pure beauty's. There is nothing better than a low flyby of a P51

Not too many Mustangs here in NZ, this is ZK-TAF, representing NZ 2415 of 3 Sq TAF/ RNZAF, this was the Canterbury Squadron of the Territorial Air Force.  The chap in the rear seat is a pilot mate (flies a Piper Cub), his family bought him the flight for his 80th birthday.   Ian S C

I liked how they formed the dot matrix "51" on the way in. Then on the way out it became "IS". Two formations side by side... :thinking:

The sound is much improved, through headphones. Especially, if you're a bit deaf, like me.  ::)

Well for me it would be this one:

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bcWMqQicxT4" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bcWMqQicxT4</a>

...because it signified the end of my 22-year involvement in the Harrier programme.

Or possibly this one, flown by a friend of mine:

...or possibly this one, flown by a friend of his (who I'd met, but didn't know that well):

And of course you don't have to fly fast to be impressive - there aren't many fast jets that could fly in THIS formation:

I would have hit the ground too Dave. Did the cameraman have any hair left or did it all  get singed off :)

He was about 20 feet above him. It was his son filming it. I'm sad it's no longer on the field. I miss seeing it flying. But still love the 51's when they fly
