    Thumbs up History soars again as rebuilt World War II plane flies into South St. Paul

    Witnessed this homecoming event along with about 50 others in the parking lot near the end of runway 34 at Fleming field yesterday August 5, 2009. Also two other P-51's and four AT-6 vintage WWII trainer aircraft participated in the flyover before the red-tailed P-51 landed solo at Fleming field. One of the AT-6 aircraft departed the formation and flew southwest before the other five vintage aircraft landed. It was amazing to witness this event in person. I hope to attend The "Wings For Hope" event this Saturday.

    Cool, I didn't hear anything about it. Did Saturday get canceled because of the storms?

    jrocky,

    That's cool! My wife got to fly in the D model, She passed in 2005.
    Have you heard about the P-38 Lightning Called "Glacier Girl"? Google it.
    It's a great restoration story.
