Imagine hearing the purr of the P-51C’s Merlin engine, from INSIDE the cockpit! You could be strapped into the jump seat of our vintage warbird for the ride of a lifetime with one of our accomplished pilots, and help support the CAF Red Tail Squadron’s educational outreach efforts at the same time!

We will be in Grand Junction, Colorado and Olympia, Washington this month and will be selling 30-minute rides in the P-51C Mustang Tuskegee Airmen. Flying in an authentic warbird like ours is truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and YOU could be flying in this majestic aircraft, just like the heroes of WWII!

To participate in this unique opportunity and to find out more about how to purchase your flight, contact Marvona Welsh, CAF Red Tail Squadron Logistics Coordinator, at 812-240-2560. Proceeds from the flights are used to fund the Squadron’s unique and important educational outreach initiatives. Learn more about these inspirational outreach efforts on our website.
