For those of us who are fascinated by (or those who even flew) these planes, this is a beautifully done movie about a WWII Ace, Jim Brooks, and P-51 Mustangs. Well worth watching.

That is an awesome video. The P-51 is my favorite plane of all time. For years I would attend the War Bird show that was put on in Madera here in California. Back in the early 80's I had an opportunity to take a ride in a Mustang for $50. I should have done it, it just was a lot of money back then.
Thanks for finding that and putting it up. I'm not a pilot but man it would be fun to fly one of those babies. My wife's dad was in the Air Corp in WWII. He wasn't a pilot, but talked alot about the bombers and fighters. He wanted to be a pilot, but he didn't weight enough....tried to gain weight so they would take him in flight school, but he couldn't put on enough...he was a little guy.
I once made a balsa P-51 control line plane........remember those Bill?

That was very touching. That was an entire generation of amazing people with amazing skills, talents, and a completely different outlook on life than we have today. We need more poeple like them around.
