    Will, welcome aboard! I am a HUGE fan of the P-51...like so many other aviators and sim enthusiasts, I envy your position The only WWII era birds I have flown are the T-6 and Stearman (220), but the biggest dream flight of all would be getting my hands on the P-51. Before I leave this earth for good, it is going to happen! I won't be too ashamed to beg and borrow along the way to get to that end....haha! I know an older gentleman in Rolla, Mo. who had a beautiful P-51 sitting in the hangar for the longest time. On one of my visits there I got to sit in the airplane. Of course I had to wipe down the wind screen fairly often because I couldn't help but make those airplane sounds throughout my spitting, errr, sitting spell. I wanted to fire up that Merlin and have a go at that beautiful Mustang. A man can dream, eh? At any rate, I believe the gentleman has transferred the stang to Texas or parts unknown.

    That happened to me too!
    I got to sit in Goerge Perez's P51 at Petaluma while my dad and he talked.
    Goerge closed the canopy and I lived and fought WW2 air battles in my mind. I was about 22 and I was totally entranced with the idea of flying one.
    You'd love it.
    A P51 is probably the most honest, straightforward tailwheel airplane I have flown.
    DO NOT PASS UP AN OPPORTUNITY TO GO FLYING IN A MUSTANG NO MATTER THE COST!
    It is one experience you wont regret!

    It has been fun testing different P51 models to see how realistic they are.
    Usually really well done!
