Thanks to Dan Gryder and our friends at Herpa Wings, "Why I Want to Fly the DC-3" essay contest winner Christa Mabry kicked off Sun 'n Fun in style. Dan and his crew had planned a very special surprise, allowing our contest winners to take the controls of the their DC-3 and lead a morning formation of warbirds over the show grounds, welcoming everyone to the 2008 fly-in. We took up a couple of spots in the DC-3 and another plane what, you thought we were going to watch this from the ground? and brought back this video of an unforgettable experience, courtesy of AVweb video editor Glenn Pew:
