Famous aviation videographer, Texan, Scott Slocum, has once again captured some breathtakingly beautiful footage of the recently restored WWII North American F-51named Brat III. The Cavanaugh Flight Museum’s P-51D made it first successful flight test after a four year laborious restoration. The ship boasts the same historically correct wartime colors as the “Brat III,” when the ship was piloted by Lt. Jjalmar Johnsen of the 401st Fighter Squadron, 370th Fighter Group in the 9th Air Force. Photos of where the reconstruction work was done can be seen at Ezell Aviation’s Facebook page.
And then, below, watch the fighter on its official rebirth flight after the four year long restoration in Addison, Texas. Just click on the image below to see the short 1:50 minute test flight.
We have 2 Stangs @ the CAF, AZ airbase museum. When you get two Merlins turning at once, there is nothing to compare to that throaty growl.
