EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2019: Warbirds - Salute to Colonel Bud Anderson

The Aero Experience continues our coverage of EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2019, sponsored by Elite Aviation, with this look at the Salute to Colonel Bud Anderson during the Thursday afternoon airshow. In true AirVenture style, eighteen North American Mustangs ran up their engines in unison prior to taking off and flying an aerial salute to the World War II ace and legendary test pilot. Two aircraft carried the Old Crow name representing Anderson's combat mounts, with rare P-51B, P-51C and the only flying P-51H models also included in the lineup. Here we feature the participating Mustangs, along with a brief video of the runup.
