Illustration for article titled This Amazing First Person View Shows Every Move It Takes To Fly A P-51

Historic aviation kingpin Kermit Weeks gives us a first-person account of every movement and operation necessary to start up, barnstorm around in, and shut down a magnificent P-51C Mustang. It is amazing to see just how docile the Mustang can be when flown by an experienced hand.

If this doesn’t look like fun, I don’t know what does!

A big thanks to Kermit for posting these awesome videos. Please keep them coming!
