The B-25 ground school on April 8th will help prepare the HFF Doolittle Crew. Space is limited. Expenses will be shared. For more details or to enlist, please call 425.348.3200.

    01/29/2011: I discovered your collection today after a visit to Flight Heritage, and they told me to go check out Historic Flight. I had a wonderful time and was very impressed with your aircraft! I am truly encouraged to know that everything is in flying condition. I can’t wait to go back. I was really happy to see the Tiger Cat and also the P-51B Mustang. I see the P-51D regularly but not the B-model. I have never seen the Tiger Cat up close, and I would LOVE to see that one fly.
    By the way, I recognize one of the pictures on your site called “Four Ship Formation.” That is three P-51 Mustangs flying formation with the F-22, and that had to be taken at the Gathering of Mustangs and Legends 2007 in Ohio, which I attended and took several photos like that one. That sure was a great event, and I am forever thankful to everyone who put that together.
