Default Tom Cruise's P-51 Mustang

I saw his interview with Diane Sawyer last night. They showed video of
him flying his sweet P-51. It's a really nice one. It has "Kiss Me
Kate" painted on the nose. He had Diane Sawyer in the back seat. He
also had two other warbirds escorting and filming him. One of them was
a british warbird, I think a Sea Fury, and the other might have been
another p-51. I definitely like his taste in planes better than John
Travolta's.

Yep, I have seen that. In fact the CAF had one. Normally there is a large
fuel tank there but if you tank it out this just enough room for a man.

A P-51 with a BACK SEAT???


Fifteen TF-51D's were built during WW2, IIRC by North American.

Temco converted 15 P-51s to dual-seat, and Bolivia operated dual-control
Mustangs after WW2.

I remember Col (later General) Reggie Urschler used to fly someone in the
back occasionally in his P-51 (Gunfighter). He flipped it on landing one
time, fortunately he and his passenger made it out OK.
There's a good article by someone that had a ride in the back of
"Gunfighter" at this web page;

There used to be one flying out of Auckland, New Zealand. $300 dollars for
a ride and some aerobatics over the harbour. It was sold back to the US
about 5 years ago after the trust operating it couldn't afford to keep it
flyable.

What do you mean? Scientology?
It's beyond me how anyone can belive in that.


It's no more ridiculous than Christianity, Judaism, or Islam as far as
I'm concerned.
What makes one religion's lies, myths, and superstitions superior to
another's?
