Heritage Flight Training
Deane Mitchell, a World War II veteran, pilot, and Ohio native tours vintage warbirds on the flightline at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base, Ariz., March 3, 2018. He piloted the P-51 Mustang, P-38 Lightning, and the P-47 Thunderbolt while serving in the Army Air Corps during World War II. DM hosts the annual Heritage Flight Training course prior to the air show season as a familiarization opportunity for active duty pilots to fly in formation with WWII and Korean-era planes. Each morning prior to the day’s training sorties, the ramp is open to service members, veterans, and their families. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt. Jensen Stidham)
