It has been years since the US Navy Legacy Tailhook Flight has been flown. In 2018, the program put on by the Navy Tailhoo Legacy Flight Foundation, returns to the skies!US Navy Legacy Tailhook Flight

Watch in awe as the F4U-4 Corsair "Korean War Hero" flown by Jim "Torc" Tobul joins up in the skies above Battle Creek with the F/A-18F Super Hornet from VFA-106. The flight will help showcase the lineage of Naval Aviation, as this WWII frontline fighter joins up with the main frontline fighter flown by the US Navy today. Through preservation, the history of the Naval Aviation continues to be told through warbirds and the Legacy Flight. These are the aircraft that our heroes flew and they will continue to tell their great stories well into the future as long as we can keep them flying!

As you see this historical flight take place, remember to think about those who have served and continue to serve in the Armed Forces. US Navy Legacy Tailhook Flight
