P-51D North American Mustang “Red Nose” – the plane that started the Commemorative Air Force and has been assigned to the Dixie Wing since 2002. The North American P-51 Mustang is a long range fighter plane that is a veteran of WWII, Korea and other conflicts. In late 1943, P-51’s started to escort the long range bombers over Nazi Germany to fend off the feared Luftwaffe and helped paved the way to Allied Air Superiority over the European Theatre. Known as the “Little Friends” to the bomber crews, the P-51’s along with P-47’s and P-38’s greatly reduced the bomber losses. Our P-51D is a two seat version and is available for rides – click here to reserve your flight.

SBD-5 Douglas Dauntless Dive Bomber – Though considered obsolete on that "Day of Infamy" in the skies over Pearl Harbor, December 7, 1941, the SBD was the first American combat aircraft to shoot down a Japanese Zero fighter. It may have been slow, but it was deadly, as that Japanese pilot found out that day. The SBD Dauntless helped turn the tide of World War II at the Battle of Midway on June 4, 1942. The "Dauntless" sunk four major aircraft carriers of the Japanese Navy, ceasing Japanese expansion in the Pacific. The SBD also served with 20 U.S. Marine Corps Squadrons and many SBDs were retrofitted with Westinghouse ASB radar, the first to be used by the U.S. Navy. The SBD was the only U.S. combat aircraft to fight from the beginning of the World War II until the end. Considered the most destructive air weapon of the U.S. Navy, the SBD sank over 300,000 tons of enemy ships, a greater tonnage of Japanese shipping than any other Allied aircraft during the war! Eighteen were warships, including five aircraft carriers sunk in the battle of the Coral Sea and Midway. It earned the nickname "Slow, But Deadly!"

North American LT-6 “Mosquito” (T-6 Texan, SNJ, Harvard) – Originally configured as an SNJ-4 (Navy version), this plane was restored to honor our Korean War Veterans as a LT-6 “Mosquito”, used for forward air control and close air support. Of course, this was the plane that every pilot – bomber or fighter – had to master before they were assigned to front line aircraft like the B-17, B-24, P-51 or Corsair to name a few.

The Beechcraft T-34 Mentor is an American propeller-driven, single-engined, military trainer aircraft derived from the Beechcraft Model 35 Bonanza. The earlier versions of the T-34, dating from around the late 1940s to the 1950s, were piston-engined. These were eventually succeeded by the upgraded T-34C Turbo-Mentor, powered by a turboprop engine. The T-34 remains in service more than six decades after it was first designed.
