Ride of a Lifetime

Tom received a birthday gift he’ll never forget. In June, he got a call saying that he was the recipient of a flight on a P51 Mustang. Tom’s had a long time interest in aviation from WWII and has visited the Imperial War Museum in London and the air field at Duxford. For him, getting a ride in a Mustang was a dream come true. Here’s my “Top Gun” getting the ride of his life! He said afterwards that it was such a privilege to ride in the cockpit of a plane that had such a big role in preserving our freedoms. He couldn’t have been flying in a better machine! He had a photo of his dad, Bill Schlueter, with him. Bill also loved aviation and was a frequent attendee at air shows. Bill also built intricate models, from scratch, as a hobby. They were little works of art.

    Thanks, Kim-B. ❤ Everyone, including Peter, had a wonderful time, and even the weather cooperated, as the heat they were predicting never got as bad as they said.
