Honoring our Veterans

Why We Endevour to Keep Her Flying...

We are committed and proud to keep Gunfighter flying to honor the WWII Veterans who flew the P-51 and supported the aircraft!  

 

By touring with Gunfighter, we are able to help Veterans families reconnect with their loved ones, and educate family members on the huge contributions made by the "Greatest Generation."

 

There is no greater reminder of the ingenuity and might of the American People than the P-51.  The first Mustang was designed and built in less than 4 months, a feat that could not be equalled today! At the peak of production, a new Mustang was completed every 66 minutes! Over 15,000 Mustangs were produced during the war effort. Of those 15,000, only about 150 remain flyable.  

 

We consider it a great privilege to campaign Gunfighter, touring Airshows and Rides events throughout the country. To see the looks on veteran's faces, to experience the joy and sorrow of family members seeing a Mustang for the first time... ?  ...It makes the hundreds of hours spent by our team each year making it possible all worthwhile!

 


 

Yes, women flew the P-51 too! Women Air Service Pilots (WASPs) test-flew and ferried aircraft all over the world in support of the war efforts.

Bring the family!

Let us help you connect with your family heritage, and remind you of the accomplishments of the "Greatest Generation!"
