Here's the F-16 and P-51 taxiing together prior to take off.
And up goes the Viper (Nicknamed after the fighters in Battlestar Galacttica)
Taking off with Afterburner.
On a high speed pass, he's moving fast enough to create a ring beard of vapor under the intake.
The F-16 is a very nimble fighter, and can easily pull 9Gs or more. Wouldn't want to black out while doing that!
On this nice photo pass, the shock diamonds of a lit afterburner can be seen.
After a dazzling routine, the Viper joins up with the Mustang.
Old and new, both premiere fighters in their time.
They play the same music/tribute for every Heritage flight, but I must admit it never gets old!
Passing directly overhead, I included this shot only to show how similar the wingspan of the WWII P-51 and the modern day F-16 was.
Here's the Mustang coming in for landing.
Followed by the Viper, wheels 'almost' touching the ground.
The F-16 and P-51 pilots wave to the crowd afterwards.
