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.
