Vintage Wings’ P51D Mustang has officially left Gatineau. Amid blue skies and a stiff crosswind, Vintage Wings pilots Rob Fleck and Joe Cosmano took off and headed west. The end goal is Calgary, with stops in Buttonville, Toronto, Hamilton, Thunder Bay, Winnipeg, Brandon, and Regina along the way. Each leg has been sponsored by a member of Vintage Wings who will experience the thrill of a lifetime as they transit in (noisy) style across our vast and beautiful country. The Mustang will then spend the summer around the Alberta region. For more information, or to sponsor a ride in the Mustang, please contact Vintage Wings West Director Todd at firstname.lastname@example.org.
