USAF Heritage Flight

Recommended Posts

I thought some of you might be interested in this website; you can learn about the Heritage Flight, pilots on the team, and the aircraft. They have been a very popular and stirring sight at airshows; almost brings tears to the eyes when you see and hear famous fighters from the various eras together in tight formation and breaks. I think my favorite formation has been the air superiority fighters of their respective decades: the P-51D, F-86F, F-4, F-15, and F-22. Due to budget issues, they are not as numerous as they used to be, but always magnificently flown by the members of the Flight. I have also re-posted a video of longtime flight member Chuck Hall's last Heritage Flight display; I've had the pleasure to have seen him fly on two different occasions; he's a consummate and very precise pilot. Hope you like these!

Mike,

Thank you for the link. Never had the opportunity to see any of the Heritage flight shows. But have been to many museums and the A-1 Skyraider the flight has on their site I've seen. Here is 606 which is one they feature. It's from the Cavanaugh Flight Museum Addison Texas. These pictures were taken January 2018.

The missus and I went to Dallas Texas for a long weekend and visited a bunch of museums. Have plenty more of their aircraft.

Enjoy

Nice collection, someday I want to see a Spad in person. How does someone get a Navy aircraft flyable legally? I thought the Navy never allowed their aircraft to fly after retiring.

It should be pointed out that the USAF Heritage Flight and the US Navy Legacy Flight are two completely different organizations; OP is referring to the USAF.
