This was the first TF51 Mustang I helped to build - finished about 5 years ago she was a 4 year project. After we did a prop change for her new owner- I went along for the test flight piloted by ex Air force commando Col. Eric "HOBO" Huppert.

Hey Jim, I "wasted" $400 on a flight in a B-24 a few yrs. back. I was at a show, one of the passengers cancelled, and I "volunteered" to take the seat. I put it on my Mastercard, all the while thinking of how many models I could've bought with the same money. I'm really glad I did it! While I enjoyed the flight immensely, it was the "feelings" that made it memorable. Essentially, I realized I was hearing and feeling exactly what those B-24 bomber crews went through every time they flew a mission (minus the people trying to kill me!) I came away with a much deeper respect for those guys and what they had to endure. Take your flight in the P-51! I think you'll find it worth every penny! Cheers!
