Almost as cool as watching Colonel Bud Anderson fly a P-51.

The guy is pushing 90.  16.25 kills against the Lutwaffe, never took a single hit.

While spending some time at FFZ yesterday, caught this rare visitor's arrival.  Too bad he approached from the backlit west side, leaving me only with these shots of him taxiing to Tango One's ramp.
