Item Description

Forget the flight simulator and video games! Instead, take a once-in-a-lifetime ride in a rare World War II era P-51C Mustang fighter airplane. For 30 minutes, you’ll be transported back to the days of dogfights over Europe, feeling and hearing the powerful Rolls Royce engine as you fly over the countryside.

Your pilot is certified for World War II vintage aircraft and will fill you in on the unique history of the airplane which features a bright red tail in honor of the famed Tuskegee Airmen who flew red-tailed fighters as they protected U.S. bombers on missions over Germany. 

Special Instructions

The winner will work directly with the Red Tail Squadron to set a time and place for the ride.
