ICYMI: Rep. McSally Flies WWII Fighter Bomber, Participates in 2018 Heritage Flight at Davis-Monthan
TUCSON– U.S. Representative Martha McSally (AZ-02) this weekend participated in the 2018 Heritage Flight Training and Certification Course at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base. During Heritage Flights, civilian pilots of historic military aircraft and Air Force pilots of current fighter aircraft practice flying in formation together. These flights raise public awareness of the Air Force mission and commemorate its history. The Congresswoman flew a remodeled P-51 Mustang, a World War II fighter-bomber that flew in the European and Pacific theatres during WWII, and then in the Korean War. She flew in formation with an A-10 Warthog on the right wing and an F-22 Raptor on the left wing.
“Davis-Monthan is an amazing base and every year we host this Heritage Flight where these aircraft come together, train together, and then they go out for the rest of the season for other demonstrations to show the past, the present, and the future of aviation. I am very honored to participate,” said Congresswoman McSally.
