    Sundowner 65503 as seen from the back seat of "Old Crow"

    you'll have to copy-and-paste to your browser---I'm not sure how to make it a clickable link.

    The video was shot from Jim Hagedorn's (formerly Jack Roush's) P-51 "Old Crow" on June 28. I was helping out at an "Aviation Careers" camp for kids 12 to 15, and giving kids rides in the Sundowner. Jim Hagedorn brought in the P-51 and his Citation jet and half the kids got rides in the P-51, the other half got rides in the Citation. One of the lucky kids who got a ride in the P-51 shot this video as they blasted past me.

    So that's what it looks like when I am intercepted in a TFR.
    Did you know they were coming up? Or did they surprise you?

    I called the Old Crow pilot and asked for a "fly-by"

    He gave me position reports and told me exactly what he was going to do --- none of it was a surprise. He did the same on the next two take-offs.

    All pretty cool.
