    You Are There! We've posted a couple of Kermie Cam videos with planes from the early days of flight, thought it would be nice to jump ahead in time and fly something from the WWII period. Step into the cockpit of a P-51C Mustang with me and go over the pre-flight check list. Get a first hand glimpse of what it is like to sit at the controls of this magnificent machine, and prepare to fly it. In parts one and two, you'll see my pre-flight preparation. Then in part three, we'll take to the skies. - Kermit Weeks (20120928)
    Watch the Kermie Cam of the P-51D model Mustang...

Wow, didn’t realize it took so long to pre-oil that engine. The radials just required being pulled through a few full turns, but this is surprisingly long in duration. This and the Corsair (F4U) are the most beautiful American propeller driven planes ever made.

Our military has had the most bad ass pilots throughout history!! My grandfather was a P-51 pilot in ww2 providing support /protection for our B17's heading to and from their bombing missions, flew his first mission at 20 years old with nearly no experience and ended up receiving a medal for his actions that mission. for dropping back from the group on the return with another p51 to protect a badly damaged b17 with an engine failing FAR behind its group and slowly loosing altitude and fuel doomed to end up in the thick Forrest below . The other p51s radio wasn't working and as my grandfather had moved in close to the nose of the b17 to make eye contact with the crew and hopefully give them some sort of calm for a moment as they approached the most common Luftwaffe assault airspace he looked up and the other p51 was nowhere in site , he eased away looking for it knowing the pilot must have seen German fighters and spotted 2 in acrobatics way above them . He climbed to help keep them off the sitting and wounded duck B-17 spending what he said felt like hours of cat and mouse as they continued to try to get shots off on the B-17 even tho it was clearly in trouble and not going to make it. My grandfather in all the dogfighting looked down at his fuel gauge and it read nearly empty with a long ways to go and still well over enemy territory if he needed to bail. He said he knew he had 2 options, continue providing cover for the B17 hopefully fending off the 2 Luftwaffe and surely end up bailing out into German territory , OR abonadon covering the wounded B17 that was surely going down shortly and try to save the p51 and his life for another her day. Sure many pilots in other places of the world would have left to try and save the P51, himself and knwoing the B17 was most likely a lost cause but he said he couldn't leave it and it's crew to be shot down by the Luftwaffe that would surely pounce as soon as he left. He found out the other P51 also was having fuel issues from the long dogfight and with no radio he peeled off to return to the group ahead and left my grandfather . My grandfather a Young American Pilot from Idaho in a plane with virtually no fuel surely to end up a POW if not killed by the 2 Luftwaffe ,stayed and continued trying to protect the B17. One of the Luftwaffe made a good hit obliterating a machine gun turret and the gunner and my grandfather in his own words said "I was mad as hell and going to kill that son of a bitch!" He broke off and after that specific German with the other behind him. Moments later he had a good shot at a diagonal like angle and fired , it sheared JUsT the glass canopy off along with the pilots head , no other damage . The other German behind him immidately cowered and turned back even being behind my grandfather . He said the unmanned German fighter just glided smoothly and in seeming slow motion earlilly with no pilot and perfectly level somehow. He was going to finish it off and had the thought as he realized it was headed directly back in the direction of the bombing target , that he'd leave it be and with any luck it'd continue and loose altitude putting it in Hitler's bunker! Lol he always told the part with a grumpy smirk on his face. He left the ghost fighter and returned to the B-17s side. I always have imagined what a reassurance it must have been to them falling far behind their group in a doomed bomber , to see 2 p51's come and cover them and in the end a single one destroying one and scaring the other off returning to their side like he chased off the wolves. He looked at his gauge and it read empty , he knew he'd need to get ready to bail when right then he heard the b17 smoking engine sputter and stop and a sudden drop in altitude . He dropped with it in desperation completely helpless and unable to do anything. He said he got as close to the crews glass to wish them luck and the pilot salute him and began to drop. He used to tell us he'd still at 88 years old wake up drenched in bed seeing the wounded b17 slowly drop to the thick Forrest below and the helpless feeling he had and the anger for the Nazis for putting them there. It dropped down and found a slight clearing ahead but my grandfather knew he didn't have the altitude or speed to make it. It went into the trees and a fireball below . My grandpa never showed emotion ever but everytime he told that story he'd get choked up and seem to zone out for a minute like he was seeing it right then. He looked back at his gauge in amazement that he still hadn't lost power and caught up to his group and let them know he was long out of fuel and would be bailing shortly and to let his superiors know the location when he jumped. He said a God given miracle happened that flight , the P51 Jsut kept going and going, until they got near the airstrip . As he decend with an about out of fuel B17 to approach, he said "I thoght hell, the damn gage must be broke! And sure enough as I said that , that son of bitch died!" Lol. He was short of the runway. But put it ina field with no damage saving the P51 and receiving a medal that sits in my moms house still today for his actions that day. My grandfather had one sibling, a little brother that was also a pilot. They became orphans when he was 13 years old when his parents passed unexpectedly. His brother was all he had. He never talked about him though, my mom and grandmother said all they ever knew was he was a pilot and he died in the war. 3 weeks before my grandpa died one day he Jsut started talking about Jack (his brother) and we all shut up as no one knew anything about him. He went in to tell the story of how his brother was killed. He was crazy enough also a p51 pilot IN MY GRANDFATHERS SAME SQUADRON! We all looked at each other realizing my grandfather would have been in the sky it sounded like when he was killed. He went on to tel about a b-17 group protection mission they were suppose to go on. His brother was really sick with the flu and my grandfather told him he couldn't go up and to sit it out and rest. He told my grandpa , you aren't going up without me there , I have a bad feeling. As if he was worried about my grandfather. They went up and on the way to the point where they leave the b17's to dontheir drop and wait for the return having got through the typical hot zones with no issue , right then he said more Luftwaffe that he had ever seen came out of nowhere . Saidnitnwas pure hell and chaos! Grandpa said he chased off 2 NOT realizing they bait him and he soon had 2 on his tail . Long story,..long,..he heard a loud pop boom behind him trying to evade the 2 while moving all 4 out and away from the b17's . He looked back and saw one of the Germans in a fireball corkscrewing down with a p51 behind it. The other one peeled and dove and he turned to get back to the group realizing as the p51 came to his side that it was Jack that saved his life. On the radio he said jack said "told ya had a bad feelin! You always protected me in school and I finally got to return it!" They continued on B lining to the battle group when out of nowhere he heard his brother yell "ARTHUR!!!!" (My grandpas name ) over the radio and as he looked down and back for Jack it was being lit up at the moment by a German . He said before I could say his name it burst into flames and I watched jacks P51 disappear into the clouds with not a damn thing I could do about it!" He stopped talking and tears pouring out his eyes , and everyone else's that had never heard that. To think ALL those years hat he never talked of it and we wondered why, was becaue he saw him shot down after being saved by him. Can't imagine how it must have affected his life. Then he said "they said I could take a few days off but Jack was all I had and I was going to spend every day I had left killing as many of those sons of bitches as I could and bringing home as many of my brothers,.. so , I went back up the next mission and every one after that I could until the war ended. And to think now jacks siting with my sweetheart waiting for me to come say thanks for giving me a full life of joy." My grandma died 3 months before in a tragic accident and it broke his heart. He passed away 3 weeks later after I found him after a fall with his head bleeding badly. His brain hemoraged and he passed. I was extremely close to them and have an airforce bracelet he wore in every mission sitting on night stand . These are the types of pilots and brave military we have! The pilots of today's fighter jets, the p51 and b17 pilots in ww2 and all the rest are the heroes that we owe everything too! Sorry for the random story, today's the anniversary of when he passed and he's on my mind so I'm watching videos of the P51 and imagining the stories and him up there in one of these in ww2! He's probably sitting by ur side in these Jsut to get the rush again.

How does the flying of this compare to the D-model? Other than the visibility out of the cockpit, I've read this model is marginally faster in level flight and climbs faster because of the drag of the D's canopy and the extra fuel weight. The main advantage of the D-model seems to the bubble canopy and extra range because of the added fuel but as I understand it these planes and the B-models (same plane; just built at different factories; this C-model is a Dallas Mustang, isn't it?) did the escort mission until the D's starting arriving. NOt every squadron transitioned to the D-model and they did modify some of these with the Malcolm bubble canopy. The one in this video obviously has the original canopy and really well-taken care of. Personally, I think the D is a prettier plane because of the canopy but when the bullets start flying you might be more comfortable in a P-47!
