Default Fun Formation

I probably got to do something today that I thought would never happen and will only get to do once. That was to fly formation in my RV-8 with a P-51 Mustang. What fun. I have attached the link to the video. It was bumpy so had youtube try to smooth it out. Not sure if I like the way the screen jumps around but a better quality picture of the Mustang.

Could you hear the P-51 engine over your own?

That's exactly what I wondered as well.

I wear a Bose headset but could hear it slightly. No mistake about the sound it's engine makes.

Hearing the prop is what got my attention, Moonbeam Mcswine tucked up on my Pitts years ago. Much louder than the engine until he decided to push it up and dust me.

Considering the chop, looks like you gave him a good lead to follow. Noticed the elevator forward trim. What speed were you holding?
