Congratulations to Chris Liguori, our latest Zero pilot.
Chris was introduced to CAFSoCal a few years ago as a P51 warbird ride participant – a gift from his lovely wife.
Since then he’s been at the wing, pitching in as time allows and has proven to be a more than capable pilot behind the controls of the F6F Hellcat.
Anxious to add to his repertoire, Chris just had his first flight behind the stick of a Mitsubishi A6M3 Zero on June 3rd.
Way to go Chris! You’ve joined a small and distinguished group of people on the planet! Can’t imagine what that must feel like.
Following the flight, Chris was met by a proud ground crew and his ceremonial shot of sake!
Great guy that he is, Chris has promised to give us a quick interview comparing what it’s like to fly the Zero vs the Hellcat. We’ll have that up soon.
