Wings of Freedom
As a kid I grew up hearing stories of how my dad lived through WWII. And most of the stars of these stories were the planes of WWII; the Spitfires, Mustangs, Hurricanes, and the numerous bombers. I was mesmerized by these stories as only a kid could be, and felt cheated that my childhood wouldn't have the same type of stories. Earlier this year I had the opportunity to view some of these planes in person though a group called Wings of Freedom. They tour around the country with a group of WWII planes, the P-51 Mustang, a B-17 Flying Fortress, and a B-24 Liberator. Today's shot is of the P-51 Mustang, or more accurately the TP-51C Mustang. A trainer (2 seater vs. the normal 1 seater) version of the American fighter plane.
