I recently flew a World War II Curtiss P-40 Warhawk (with three kills). It was a beautiful experience in a beautiful plane, but it pales in comparison with the P-51 Mustang. Watch and enjoy this amazing classic aeroplane porn.
There’s something about this plane that goes beyond the sum of its parts. Its combination of sublime design and power made it the most beautiful lethal weapon ever created and the most beautiful prop plane ever. It’s a pleasure to see it photographed in this way, with perfect camera work.
Obviously, it’s an ad for watch manufacturer Breitling. I don’t care about the watch, but I want to spend the rest of my life going to dates with girls on my shiny P-51. [Thanks Jorge!]
