P51 Warplane Photos

My father, Les, became interested in flying in the 1960s starting with a Cessna single engine plane. I think that became too slow a flight, and he yearned for something fast, cool. His quest led him to purchase a P51, taking aerobatic lessons, and continuously practicing emergency maneuvers (even at the dinner table!).

Dad passed away in 2007 yet my love and memories of him continue. This collection of photos of his flying days in his bright red P-51D are a tribute to the father I so dearly loved.
