Synopsis by Alice Day
Aviation devotees will have an opportunity to experience the capabilities of three WWII fighters in Warbird Checkout Series, Vol. 3. A thorough look at the P-51 Mustang is offered in "Flying the P-51 Mustang," with footage of its ability to perform stalls, dives from high altitudes, spins, and other maneuvers. "Flying the P-39: Introduction" shows the fighter, also known as the Airacobra, performing basic takeoff and landing, while "Flying the P-39: Advanced" goes into more complex moves, including flying in formation and aerobatics. This series also includes "Flying the A-20 Bomber," a light bomber produced in 1940.
