In our continuing series of short presentations of vintage aircraft, this video is posted on You-tube and is Part 2 of our “Winged Warriors of the Past” Series.

These are just pictures of P-51 Mustangs, series B through D, taken in Florida after WW II in the1950’s and early 60’s, by one of our close associates’ father who had and flew both a P-51D and F8U Bearcat as shown in our earlier video in Part 1 Warbirds. As we are located in the Reno/Tahoe area and have been attending the Reno Air Races for many years, please stay tuned for more to come of that fine event and some more B/W vintage plane photos from the past.

More to follow from the Pits……….

Most of our pictures, articles, films and video productions have been of Cars and/or Motor Racing, however this quick video is of some Vintage WW II Aircraft taken in Florida in the mid 1950’s to the early 1960’s. One of our associate’s Dad was heavily into racing of all kinds with boats, plane and cars and he was kind enough to let us share some of these “Warbird” images from the past. The custom Bearcat in the early pictures was actually theirs, “Back in the Day”. There is also a bunch of pics of P-39 “Air Cobras” not the Shelby Cobras we would normally show. Interesting that the P-39 from Bell Industries had the name Cobra before the American Icon sports car was christened with the name. This will be one of four more anticipated videos of vintage aircraft, so please come back in the near future to enjoy these old memories…..
