“I have wanted to fly the P51 since I was 10 years old during WW2. The P51 was instrumental in my decision to pursue a career in aviation. Subsequently, I got to fly most of the USAF century fighters, plus several other neat airplanes. Today, 80 years later, on my 90th birthday, I got to fly with John Black in P51 Crazy Horse. A fantastic experience. I did most of the flying after takeoff, including loop, rolls and landing. All with substantial verbal input from John “Homer” Black, who was a USAF F-15 pilot. It was all it was advertised to be. I recommend the experience for any aviation enthusiast. It’s even better for an experienced pilot. Well done Stallion 51. Thanks.”

“One will note that every review is 5 star. There’s a reason for that. If you have any interest at all in Aviation History, or just flying, this experience cannot be surpassed. Flying Crazy Horse was a dream come true, the culmination of a 35 year old bucket list item. My pilot was Jerry “Jive” Kerby, (great guy, and superb pilot) and the only reason I give the experience 5 stars is because they don’t have more. On a scale of 1 to 100, flying a P51 rates about 500. Don’t wait until you’re as old as me (77), my inner ear betrayed me, and I made myself sick flying the plane. Do it while you’re young, and can enjoy every attitude of ACM (Air Combat Maneuvering). Notwithstanding the physical limitations I have, I plan to go back, and fly the jet. Stallion 51 is EWEP. (Excellent, Worth Every Penny).”

“Many years in the making and I was finally able to book a flight with Stallion 51 and Jerry “Jive” Kerby and the very fitting “Little Witch” TF-51. I took a ride in “Ho Hun” in 1989 but nothing compares to actually being the one in control of this beautiful airplane. She is a brute but handles like a Princess and was a dream to fly. Jerry was fantastic in his pre-flight, flight op and post flight explanations and directions and made you feel right at home. The staff from the smallest of jobs all the way up the line made me feel at home and took care of all my questions and needs. Do yourself a favor before you wish you had and book a flight in one of these extraordinary warbirds. You will not regret it.”
Rick Nelson
Flying the Mustang was one of the most exhilarating things I have ever done. I have absolutely no experience flying a plane, but my pilot Steve made me feel like a pro. Everyone there is extremely friendly and was a pleasure to talk to. I would recommend this to anyone that has a love for flying. It also gave me an increased sense of admiration for the pilots that flew these planes in combat. I cannot wait to do it again!

Unsung heroes!

Awesome team the whole Lauderback Family and the whole Stallion51 Family. It has been a pleasure and an honor to meet you all during my P-51 checkout course 🤩 Keep them Flying 🔧💪 Thank you for your dedication

Thanks to the Lauderback brothers for making me feel safe throughout the flight. You did a great job and I appreciate your professionalism and skill.👍

Distinctive ! 🤩🤩 !


This is one amazing and very professional outfit, I felt absolutely safe when I flew with them, an experience that I will never forget!

Iconic site! Masters of their profession.

First class operation in all respects. I was able to fly Crazy Horse II several years ago. Awesome experience

They are the best!!

beautifully made post and accolade to the behind the scenes heroes - well done

Awesome 👍👍👍

Just look at the floor, says it all!

Good old boys!

Still on my bucket list to fly with y'all.

A great group of men and always willing to answer questions.

I hope the Pilots realize that these airplanes are truly theirs, the pilot merely borrows it. How many MMH's (maintenance man hours) does it take to keep a P-51 Mustang in the air 1 hour.

Cool picture.

I had the pleasure of flying "crazy horse" with Lee. Top pilot and a genuine guy. Even after over 10 years it's still a clear memory.
