  • I was flying in the rear seat of the first Mustang to land 'Janie' for this trip to Cosby in September. Our flight time from Norfolk was about 35 minutes including the run and break. We did some great formation flying together on the trip over and in time I will upload my video to my YouTube channel also. Thanks for posting!

  • Thanks for your kind words. It certainly was far more than just a 'pleasure flight' and truly a privilege to part of such a unique occasion. I know what you mean about the goosebumps - I had to pinch myself on numerous occasions over the course of the weekend, but especially when the entire bomber formation flew towards the crowd at Willow Run, so representative of an Eighth Air Force Squadron flying back home to their wartime English bases. Be sure to check out Part 1 of the video too !

  • Thank you for posting this video - i loved the sound clip at the end of the Wright Cyclone running up. I flew aboard her in July 2008 when she came to East Anglia, UK - It was a very memorable flight and we realised how lucky we were to have the opportunity at the time, but maybe in retrospect, didn't realise how lucky we would be to fly aboard the Liberty Belle.
