It has been quiet here...

Maybe I can fix that...
Just imagine for a moment if you will, flying a P-51 Mustang at 250 Knots, 100 feet off the ground through low rolling hills and sparse trees. Ah, the bliss, to see the scenery flying by, right hand gently holding the stick, as you smoothly pull up as the next hill comes, then down again, ho! a turn ahead, stick and rudder move right plane tilts and then back comes the stick and around the corner you swing, then just for the thrill, left hand pushes throttle wide the powerful Merlin roars to life as the plane levels off, then, you pull back hard on the stick, the nose comes up and up you rush to the clouds airspeed drops you stall turn at 5000 ft and plunge straight down toward the ground pull up and make a hard left then up and all the way over for a loop. Then you climb again, this time more slowly, till you reach 10000 feet, and you flip over and view the grind from your vantage point, what beauty. Slowly the stick comes back the nose again plunges down, down, down then just in the nick of time you pull up hard, swing right and head for home, now that was a fun flight. Very Happy

That sounds like so much fun! It would be so neat to be at the controls of a P-51!
