Happy Independence Day! You’re probably wondering why this isn’t taking place on the 4th, this is because we don’t want a low turnout, as Americans will likely be enjoying the festivities. To celebrate independence, we’ll be doing some low-level flying from Andrews AFB just outside of America’s capital, Washington D.C., to Philadelphia, PA, where the Declaration of Independence was signed.
Cruise altitude and speed: 210-220 KIAS, 2,000 feet
Departure Airport: KADW
Arrival Airport: KPHL
Estimated Flying Time: 20-25 minutes

More gates will be added if needed.
Please maintain 5-8NM spacing in the air. As the P-38 doesn't have Auto Pilot, it's important that you keep an eye on the controls at all times to make sure you don't go outside of the planned altitude and speed. A small differential is fine if you are unable to maintain 210-220 and 2000 exactly. Of course, I don't expect everyone to be right on the dot! 20-25 minutes may seem like a lot of time manually flying a plane, but time flies by, literally :)
Hope to see you there! Have a happy and safe July 4th!
