On July 7th, 2012 the Battleship USS Iowa started its new life as a floating museum. During the opening day ceremonies, the Planes of Fame Air Museum flew a three ship formation over the Iowa. We were allowed to have our GoPro cameras on the aircraft to record this beautiful flight to and from the Iowa. Special thanks to the Planes of Fame Air Museum located in Chino, CA. for the access.
Pilots flying the aircraft are:
B-25, John Maloney & David Vopat
P-51 Mustang, Tom Nightingale
P-40 Warhawk, Robbie Patterson
