    Fantastic video James. Wish this kind of thing was on TV.

    That was one great plane. An associate of mine in Australia has a client that makes kits of Spitfires, also a great plane of the same time.

    Take a look at this site....all one needs is money.

    Man, I'm choked up. Thanks for the link. I've always loved the P-51. Beautiful story too! Jim.

    Great video.... I don't think it's the same plane, but in Nov last year, there were 4 WWII planes that flew into the Athens, TN airport for an airshow... My wife and I walked around and phtographed all of the old planes... one of them was a P51... I'm not enough of a war buff to know what the others were, but they were definitely impressive.

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.
