1st DCS P51 fright

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

The title and tags say it all....it was frightful, and I avoided contact with the plane's chief mechanic all day after I climbed out of the cockpit!  (Picture the character "Red" the mechanic in the TV series Black Sheep Squadron) ..."You broke my airplane college boy!" LOL. 

Yes the right landing gear was partially collapsed as well.   

I logged 5 landings on this flight...all within a few seconds of each other.:blink:

Guess flying the P51 is a little different than flying a 747.

The P-51 is a hard plane to master.  Great shot!

Yeah gets even harder when you get parts of your plane blown off like i recently did when a P-51D blew the tip of my wing off in the FW-190.   I did land safely but the gear and most of the plane was finished.  lol.   At least i got 2 B-17s
