This flight was really fun and I am really fortunate to have gone on it for only $35! Guess being a Mid-Atlantic Air Museum member has it's perks, other than being able to be surrounded by historic aircraft all day long when you volunteer, and being able to volunteer at the world's biggest WWII themed airshow.

There are a few wing-overs in this video, so be sure to check out the table of contents for when they start!
