THE MUSTANG

The Mustang was among the best and most well-known fighters used by the U.S. Army Air Forces during World War II. Possessing excellent range and maneuverability, the P-51 operated primarily as a long-range escort fighter and also as a ground attack fighter-bomber with bombs, rockets, and machine guns. 

 

The Mustang served in nearly every combat zone during WWII and proved to be what many consider the most successful fighter in history.

Ultimate Warbird Flights on behalf of Anglia Aircraft Restorations are delighted to offer you the chance to experience a flight in the aircraft that became known as the Cadillac of the skies. Take the control of the UK’s only dual control P-51 Mustang and experience this legendary fighter for yourself.

NORTH AMERICAN'S FINEST

Built too late to see combat service in World War Two, P-51D 44-84847 was one of the last Mustangs constructed at North American Aviation’s Dallas, Texas, plant. Details of her post war service career are limited, but there is photographic evidence, from September 1951, of her serving with the 45th Tactical Reconnaissance Squadron at Kimpo, South Korea, during the Korean War.

By late 1951 the 45th TRS were replacing their aging Mustangs with RF-80 Shooting Star jets, and so 44-84847 was shipped back the US to serve with the Air National Guard until around 1956. Around this time she slips off the radar until January 1999 when she re-appears in North Dakota as a restoration project. The airframe moved to Chino, California for a full restoration with the decision made to modify her to two-seat TF-51D configuration.

Relive your experience with incredible 360° in-flight video footage!

 

All of our two seat aircraft are now fitted with 360° GoPro cameras, capable of capturing mind-blowing footage of your experience!

Embracing this cutting edge technology means that most home devices are currently unable to play the raw movie file without additional apps, so each flight is uploaded by us to a private domain in YouTube, a free to use and readily available platform. Following your flight, you will be sent a unique link, so that the footage is only visible to you and anyone you choose to share it with. We will also send you the raw file digitally as a back-up. 

Reliving your experience is best accomplished using the Google VR headset provided by us following your flight. After sliding your smartphone into the the headset, you can view the video through the lenses using a special function on YouTube. When moving your head, the phone automatically tracks your movements and changes the view, putting you right back in the experience! 

​If you're not sure whether to go for this option when you book your flight you can always wait until the day of your flight.. You will then be able to try a 360 video before you fly and make your decision then. 

GoPro 360 package: £100
