Thrill of a Life­time

Electric Flight - - FROM THE COCKPIT -

What could be bet­ter than fly­ing in a full-size P-51 Mus­tang, B-24 Lib­er­a­tor, or open-cock­pit Stear­man? As soon as the Elec­tric Flight edi­tors laid eyes on Budd Davis­son’s “So You Wanna Fly a Warbird” guide to get­ting air­borne in a leg­endary fighter or bomber, we knew we had to share it with other warbird en­thu­si­asts—namely, you, our read­ers. We read ev­ery is­sue of our sib­ling pub­li­ca­tion Flight Jour­nal cover to cover and es­pe­cially ap­pre­ci­ate be­ing able to share fea­tures like this. We hope you en­joy the ar­ti­cle as much as we do and that you’ll find a warbird ride close to you this sum­mer.
