P-51 Mustang "Lady Alice" at the Lyon Air Museum
In part II, Lady Alice and Dr. Ken Wagner get an invitation to the Lyon Air
Museum to display Lady Alice for the museum's guests. We sent one of our
camera teams to document this event for Warbirds On The Net. The Lyon Air
Museum is the newest premiere air museum on the west coast and is an world
class venue to display World War II aircraft and memorabilia. Lady Alice
was on display for just two days before flying back to her home base in

Flying DH Mosquito KA114.
In October 2012 Warren Denholm put our POV camera on his helmet to record
the photo shoot we conducted from Ardmore with the Mosquito and a DH
Vampire over Auckland city in New Zealand, photo plane was the Spitfire in
Take off - 1:49
Vampire & Spitfire Formation - 4:35
Spitfire Close Formation - 6:07
Landing - 13:55
The beeping sound you can hear sometimes is caused by the throttles being
pulled back to a certain point with the undercarriage up, it is a warning
for the pilot during the landing phase but in certain stages of flight it
is ok to hear it and can see and hear how much skill and attention is
needed to fly the Mosquito in formation.
Dave Phillips is the test pilot during this flight.
Taken and Recorded by Gavin Conroy.

BOTH of Maurice Hammond's wonderful P51 Mustang restorations. Marinell &
Janie, starting up and taking off from Hardwick Airfield in Norfolk UK.
Wonderful Merlin Engine sounds and awesome head on takeoff footage.
This was filmed for the Ridley Scott YouTube project "Life in A Day", thus
the slightly oddball questions included - they were set within the project.
Maurice and his family & helpers do a great deal of charity work besides
keeping his amazing collection of planes in the air, so please support them
whenever you can!
The North American Aviation P-51 Mustang was an American long-range,
single-seat fighter and fighter-bomber used during World War II, the Korean
War and other conflicts. The Mustang was conceived, designed and
built by North American Aviation (NAA) in response to a specification
issued directly to NAA by the British Purchasing Commission.
The prototype NA-73X airframe was rolled out on 9 September 1940, 102 days
after the contract was signed and, with an engine installed, first flew on
The Mustang was originally
designed to use the Allison V-1710 engine, which had limited high-altitude
performance. It was first flown operationally by the Royal Air Force (RAF)
as a tactical-reconnaissance aircraft and fighter-bomber. The addition of
the Rolls-Royce Merlin to the P-51B/C model transformed the Mustang's performance at altitudes
above 15,000 ft, giving it a performance that matched or bettered the
majority of the Luftwaffe's fighters at altitude.
The definitive version, the P-51D, was powered by the Packard V-1650-7, a
license-built version of the Rolls-Royce Merlin 60 series two-stage
two-speed supercharged engine, and armed with six .50 caliber (12.7 mm) M2
Browning machine guns.
From late 1943, P-51Bs (supplemented by P-51Ds from mid-1944) were used by
the USAAF's Eighth Air Force to escort bombers in raids over Germany, while
the RAF's 2 TAF and the USAAF's Ninth Air Force used the Merlin-powered Mustangs as fighter-bombers,
roles in which the Mustang
helped ensure Allied air superiority in 1944.
The P-51 was also in service with Allied air forces in the North African,
Mediterranean and Italian theatres, and saw limited service against the
Japanese in the Pacific War. During World War II, Mustang pilots claimed 4,950 enemy
aircraft shot down.
At the start of Korean War, the Mustang was the main fighter of the
United Nations until jet fighters such as the F-86 took over this role; the
Mustang then became a
specialized fighter-bomber. Despite the advent of jet fighters, the Mustang remained in service with
some air forces until the early 1980s. After World War II and the Korean
War, many Mustangs were
converted for civilian use, especially air racing.
Pilot Crashes on First Solo
Early reports say the engine was 100% fine. The crash was due to the pilot
not having his hand on the throttle for takeoff along with the pilot's
inability to maintain proper climb attitude. I hope this guy never flies
again for our safety.

Listen to the 2,000 horsepower generated by the

You'll see during the flybys why the Japanese called this fighter the
This aircraft just leaps off the runway in just a few seconds, and
remember, the manifold pressure used today for takeoff with 100-octane
low-lead fuel is not anywhere near what could be used with the wartime,
130-octane+ fuel. Very impressive!

This Mustang was filmed at
the Air Classics Airshow in Gelnhausen 2011. There was very very strong
wind, so sometimes the the camera was shaking and you sadly hear the sound
of the wind. Sorry ;)

FHC Luftwaffe Day - Focke Wulf 190 A-5 and Messerschmitt Bf-109E-3 Emil
Visit my blog at: http://fight2flyphoto.blogspot.com/
Saturday, August 6, 2011 was a historic day in aviation history as the
worlds only flying original Focke-Wulf 190 flew in formation with one of
only two airworthy Messerschmitt Bf-109 E-3s. The Focke-Wulf 190A-5
features its original BMW motor and was restored to the exact condition it
was in during its service in World War Two. This was the first time these
two aircraft were in the sky together since WWII.
Both of these aircraft belong to Paul Allen's Flying Heritage Collection in
Everett, Washington, home of the flying warbirds.
Video was shot with Canon VIXIA HG20
