I want to thank Steve Larmore for a very enjoyable hour of flying.I went with my son a retired F-14 flyer who was going to fly the TF-51. Upon arrival I spotted a T-6 and mentioned it was my primary trainer in the USAF in 1949. The P-51 instructor mentioned that it would be great if father/son flew formation.The T-6 was available. With very little coaxing I said lets do it.I informed Steve that my last flight in a T-6 was60 years ago. My last flight was 23 years ago We briefed the flight did cockpit familiarization. Climb into the front Cockpit . After takeoff I raised the gear and took control of the aircraft. We climbed to 6000 and joined up with the P-51 we flew formation for 10 min then all went to do their own thing. We did basic maneuvers and aerobatics. Then it was time to return to the airport. I made the landing with some coaxing from Steve, it must have been a good one cause we walked away from it. We had a debriefing and review of the video. In my opinion, STALLION 51 is a top notch organization. The aircraft are exceptionally maintained and clean not a spot of oil anywhere. My instructor Steve was exceptional. I had not flown for a long time and he made me feel comfortable flying the aircraft.
I highly recommend STALLION 51 if you want to experience the joy and pleasure of flying a genuine airplane. By the way I am 86 years old. Floyd "Rocky"Nelson LT COL. USAF(ANG) RET
