What's More Cool than a Ferrari Video ... ?

Not everyone may agree, but this is one cool video.



I live in Arizona and these two WW2 airplanes are based at Falcon Field in Mesa, AZ (suburb of Phoenix) and this video was shot a couple years ago. These two bombers still fly today and visitors to the Commemorative Air Force museum can take rides on either of these planes.

Enjoy,

Steve

That was incredibly inspiring. Back when you could be proud to be called a citizen of the USA. I loved the score behind the scenery as well.
Thanks!

Some of us are still proud.

Of all the narcissists I know, I love me the most.

David- At least two of us, but then we got shot at so people can say whatever they like.

If you are in Arizona in the fall to spring time, you can purchase rides on these two bombers. The route they take for those rides pretty much flies over that terrain.

What an absolutely beautiful video!! A BIG thank you to our veterans who served and to those who continue to serve in our military in order to allow us the freedoms we have.

Without getting too gushy I would like also to thank all of you military guys and those who paid the ultimate sacrifice (RIP) for helping shape our world the way that it is.

If ever I am lucky enough to get to Arizona again, I'd love to take that flight. Breathtaking!

David.

Great video I live in an area of England that has lots of former WW2 8th USAAF bases that were equipped with B17s. The closest to me is Grafton Underwood but there is also Deenethorpe, Polebrook, Chelveston, Kimbolton, and Poddington with the former fighter base at Kingscliffe that initially flew P38s and then later P51 Mustangs not far away either. It is very poignant whenever I pass any of them and see the various memorials for the brave men who flew from these airfields. A B17 flew over my area around a month back and would be the example that flies out of the Imperial War museum at Duxford. It was a fantastic sight and a stirring reminder of what it must have been like here 70 years ago.

Current: F50, 246 GT (x 2), 246 GTS
Past: 360M, F430 spider, 430 Scuderia,

Pretty cool
I flew during the Vietnam war (but stationed stateside - bummer)

I just wished I'd been born earlier to fly during WW2
Those guys were my heroes growing up

Nice post!

Nice post!
I was in Air Force during Vietnam war, but stationed in England at RAF Wethersfield. I did not fly, I was a nuke weapons specialist. But have soft spot for the WW2 guys. One of my NCOs was waist gunner in B-17. His plane was shot down and he spent two years as POW. From stories I heard and read, I think should be thankful not in B-17 in those days. It is my understanding that those guys had highest casualty rate of any group in American combat.
