A Small Herd of Mustangs (P-51, that is) at Whitehorse

Having three P-51 Mustangs overnight at Whitehorse brought a lot of people out to the airport for a look. They are from the Bremont Horsemen Aerobatic Team, which first took off over a decade ago as the worldโ€™s only P-51 Mustang formation aerobatic team, though they fly several other vintage aircraft now as well.The Bremont Horsemen for 2014 are Steve Hinton flying lead, with Dan Friedkin and Ed Shipley sticking tight to his wings. The aircraft that came through YXY on their way to the Arctic Thunder air show at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson in Anchorage this weekend were:

North American P-51K Mustang 412016, registered as NL98CF and with the nickname “Fragile but Agile”, has a confusing history, a bit of which can be seen here.

  1. My brother in Anchorage had sent me the newspaper link to airshow pics over the weekend…had wondered if they were shipped or flown up.
