Airmen stand looking up to watch the airplanes. The squadron buzzes the field in a very low altitude formation. Several views of the squadron in formations at various altitudes.. When done, the lead P-51, with numeral 1 on its side and the name: "Skipper's Darlin" painted on its nose, lands on the runway and taxis to the end. There it is met and guided to a halt by its Crew Chief, who promptly climbs on the left wing and rides with his legs dangling over the leading edge, as the plane taxis back to its parking place. This is repeated by other landing aircraft and their crew chiefs, who ride back on the wings of their respective airplanes.
