    The D model in front, or the C model on the leader's right wing?
    I have stick time in one; the airport where I first worked, and got my ticket, had one, and one of the instructors gave me a ride.

    For those interested in such things, there's a good museum close enough to make a day trip: Cavanaugh Flight Museum, at Addison Airport (Dallas). The very cool part is that a substantial portion of their collection is fully airworthy, and you can get rides in several (including the only FAA-approved 2-seat Corsair).

    Start saving your pennies!

    The B2 at the Rose Bowl absolutely shook my soul. Was awesome and there was a second out North above the mountains as they were flying in formation. Truly COOOL flying wing. It won't let me upload my video for some reason, but WOW.

    Totally understandable. If you've not seen it go dig up and watch the video with the Jack Northrop backstory on it.

    P-51 Mustang, and SR-71.
    A friend of mine was airport fire control duty in Mildenhall England. They had to "mist" the plane for over an hour before the pilots could exit the aircraft. Because of air friction, the plane grew in length and temperature requiring the cool down period.
