So How Does it Work?
Whilst en-route to an airshow the Mustang will make several stops for refuelling etc. These stops form the sectors available to you. As the lucky passenger you will be met at the designated airport by the support crew or the Pilot and introduced to SNIFTER, the Mustang. You will be given a flight suit and helmet to wear for the flight and briefing. Once the paperwork is done its time to strap in!
As you will imagine, all sectors offer spectacular scenery and the opportunity to be part of a unique flight experience behind the legendary 1490HP Rolls-Royce Merlin V12 as it powers our iconic P51 Mustang “Snifter” (actually built as an Australian CAC18 Mk21) – one of the most significant aircraft of all time.
The flight profile can include aerobatic manoeuvres to taste and provides you with the opportunity to feel what it was like to fly in this renowned machine as those young men did as many as 75 or so years ago.
* Getting to and from the points of your departure and arrival will be via your own arrangements.
