Aero-TV At Oshkosh 2009: Heritage Flight -- Honoring History At AirVenture

Amazing Men and Women Honored in Flight

The U.S. Air Force Heritage Flight program was established in 1997 to commemorate the Air Force's 50th anniversary. It involves today's state-of-the-art fighters flying in close formation with World War II, Korean and Vietnam era fighters such as the P-51 Mustang and the F-86 Sabre.

The flight's mission is to safely and proudly display the evolution of U.S. Air Force airpower and to support the Air Force's recruiting and retention efforts.

There are 18 pilots in this program. The modern Air Force fighters are piloted by the six Air Combat Command (ACC) single-ship demonstration team pilots and the vintage warbirds are piloted by 10 civilians, including former Air Force, Army, Navy, and Marine pilots. In addition, two active duty F-4 pilots joined the program in 2005.
