EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2015: Airshow Performers - USAF Heritage Flight

Fred Harl and Carmelo Turdo Heritage Flight has been a favorite airshow attraction since its inception in 1997 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the founding of the U.S. Air Force.  The Heritage Flight performance features several passes flown by current and past generations of U.S. Air Force and U.S. Army Air Force (now civilian warbirds) aircraft.  The Heritage Flight quickly became a standard feature of military and later civilian-based airshows, and the Air Force Heritage Flight Foundation was formed in 2010 to coordinate the recruitment and training of civilian pilots who fly the warbirds from the World War II, Korean War and Vietnam War eras in formation with the current USAF combat aircraft from the established Air Combat Command demo teams (F-22, F-16, etc.).

The EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2015 Heritage Flight consisted of F-22 Raptor Demo Team pilot Major John Cummings along with two World War II era fighters: P-38 Lightning and P-51D Mustang.  The following photo essay shows three different Heritage Flight performances flown during the week:
