    Very cool video

    I have a friend who flew the P-51 in the pacific. He is in his eighties and just renewed his pilots license a few years ago. Still going strong. Those guys were something special. They still are.

    This video is worth the watch. Thank you for posting it.

    I agree....!

    I've always loved flying RC planes. I've taken a move towards helicopters of late and am taking my first steps. The idea being I dont have to push so far to go pick up the pieces.....

    lmao! My husband flies RC planes and you aren't kidding about 'pieces'!

    His planes made out of solid foam are repaired many, many times.
    Unfortunately, his P-51 lasted less than an hour and was unrepairable.
    He was so pissed!

    That was my childhood. Literally hours and days and weeks spent in my bedroom gluing balsa wood together and covering in film......then my dad driving me to the beach to fly it. He knew nothing about rc planes and each one would smash into a thousand pieces within seconds.

    My parents told be years later that they felt so bad for me, yet I kept going back for more punishment......character building I guess, I'm used to disappointment
