Exclusive Video from Sun 'n Fun 2008:
Essay Contest Winner Christa Mabry Flies the Herpa DC-3 in Warbird Formation
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:
