A lone P-51 Mustang makes a solitary cross-country flight above the mighty and expansive Grand Canyon. At the end of WWII hundreds of Mustangs along with numerous other types of war surplus aircraft made similar flights. These flights took the once noble and gallant war machines to the aircraft graveyards of the southwestern United States. Once there, these airplanes that led the allies to victory became material for the welders cutting torch. Who knows how many a pilot shed a bittersweet tear as he flew his beloved aircraft over the wondrous beauty of the Grand Canyon on its last flight.
