My P-51 Ride

Engine Start and Taxi

This video was taken by Ian, who is no longer standing on the wing.

The motion of the propeller seems strange because the video was taken at 30 frames per second, while the propeller is turning at about 16 revolutions per second at idle.  

You may want to lower the volume on your speakers.


The GIB took this video of the takeoff and climb to pattern altitude.

Departure for the Maneuvering Area

Another video by the GIB. We are about 1500 feet above ground level. We have turned around and heading toward the Salton Sea, about 30 miles south-east of the airport.

The airport is visible on the left side of the frame.
