The amazing P-51 The Horsemen performance during the Flying Legends Airshow in Duxford. The Horsemen Aerobatic Team are the world’s only P-51 Mustang aerobatic team, comprising three warbird pilots who have a passion for showcasing the P-51 Mustang. The mission of The Horseman is to bring greater interest to the world of historic aviation and to remind future generations of how these powerful machines helped the Allies change the outcome of WWII. Jim Beasley serves as the Horsemen Flight Lead. In addition to the Mustang, he flies the T-6 Texan and Spitfire XVIII. Jim is also a civilian pilot for the USAF Heritage Flight program. Dan Friedkin also flies the T-6 Texan, Spitfire, Wildcat and various helicopters. The USAF recently selected Dan as a Heritage Flight civilian pilot. Ed Shipley is the founder of the group and is a long-time air show performer with more than 18 years of experience flying the T-6 Texan, P-51 Mustang, the F8F Bearcat and the F-86 Sabre. He was also one of the civilian founders of the USAF Heritage program and serves on the International Council of Air Shows’ Board of Directors. The Horsemen fly their formation aerobatic routine in 3 original P-51 Mustangs which previously served in WWII. These authentic Mustangs are owned by two of the pilots. Nearly 15,000 Mustangs were built in WWII at a cost of $50,000 each. Today, approximately 150 Mustangs remain flying at an average cost of around $2,000,000 Thank you Jim, Dan and Ed for your beautiful display, for your sympathy and your autograph on our golden pass !
