Thrill of a Lifetime
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.
