Had the great fortune of riding in a mustang in the early 90's I think. Was on a Labor Day air show and was the absolute thrill of a lifetime. It was the last of the shows on the circuit that year. The next show the following year I think was at Buffalo and he cracked it up and killed himself.

I went up into Canada in July 2001 on a week long fishing excursion .

We had to fly in to a private lake with a cabin on an island and they dropped us off in one of these .



That was probably the most exciting flight I ever took. I sat in the Co-Pilot seat on the return trip :D

Taking off and landing on water is a very odd feeling.

Probably the best US fighter in the war.


I know the P-51 gets all the glory, but the F4U was faster, had a better climb rate, and could carry a larger payload.  Not only that, but it could do that while operating off a carrier.


The only thing that the P-51 had over the F4U was range.


In fact when the two actually met in combat (Google FOOTBALL WAR) the Corsair defeated the P-51.
