That's great. Are you an official pilot of this plane or does the owner just hand you the controls from time to time? That is, do you take off and land that beast?

There are only two sounds in this world that literally make the hair stand up on my arms -- one is the thunder of a P-51 (and the other, perhaps oddly, is perfect, a cappella, vocal harmony). I spent the whole weekend at the Monterey historics watching spectacular Porsches, including 917s, 908s, and 935s at full song, and though I love them, not one of them can compare with the sound of a P-51.

You're fortunate to be able to be around such an incredible machine.
