When the Old meets the New…

I just want to say thank you so much to my good ole buddy of mine Mr. Maniac. He’s the one who helped me make this come together. Props to you my dude!! 🙌🏼🙌🏼

After all of the military posts I’ve done in the past, I figured I’d switch it up. My friend and I decided to do a two ship formation of a P-38 Lightning and a F-22 Raptor, kinda representational of the USAF back then and now. (Somewhat about the USAF Heritage Flight) We flew out from KNPA, flying along the Pensacola beach all the way to Destin. Then turned around and landed back at KNPA. The mind blowing part about this is how crazy we went from piston powered prop planes to turbine powered jets with afterburners.

Prep for takeoff ✅.

(Don’t worry, he moved over so he couldn’t get blasted by the burners 🙂)

Of course, the beauties in the Sunset 😍.


The famous USAF Heritage Flight Cross-over break 🇺🇸.

Excuse us kissing the ground 🥴


Once again I really appreciate Mr. Maniac for helping me make this flight happen. Loved each and every minute of this experience! 🤝🏼
