Aircraft: North American P-51D Quick Silver
Scott “Scooter” Yoak has more than 1,000 hours behind the controls of a P-51 alone, and more than 6,500 total time. He beautifully demonstrates the capabilities of the famous World War II warbird at air shows across the country. The P-51 he flies has a special story: Rather than being an original production-line aircraft, it was built by Scott’s father, Bill, and is composed of the parts of many P-51s. The entire paint scheme, from the black and white stripes on the wings to the feathers at the back of the canopy, serves as a tribute to the veterans of World War II.
