“Heritage Flight”: The P-51 “Mustang” and the F-22 “Raptor”

 

For me, the highlights of the afternoon were:

  • The “Torah! Torah! Torah!” re-enactment. It was a 5-7 minute presentation, complete with pyrotechnics and an announcer, “broadcasting” events from that day. I captured a few short 20-40 second videos, but they weren’t the greatest of captures.
  • The F-22 “Raptor”. That jet is so ridiculously maneuverable!
  • The Redline aerobatic team – 2 planes, performing aerobatics in tandem

Some booths that were there included: the U.S. Army, Marines, Coast Guard, and Navy (I’m assuming the Air Force was there but I missed their booth); a Ohio chapter of the Tuskegee Airmen; and various “static” displays of military and civilian aircraft.

It was a fun afternoon, getting away from the city, even if it was for only a handful of hours!
