Class of 45
The “Class of ‘45’s” origins are really quite simple. While watching practice at the Wings Over North Georgia airshow in October of 2013, pilots Jim Tobul and Scott Yoak were discussing the USAF’s Heritage and U S Navy’s Legacy flights. Tobul, owner of the F4U-4 Corsair “Korean War Hero”, and Yoak, owner of the P-51D Mustang “Quick Silver” started talking about doing a formation flight of their own to honor the service personnel who flew and maintained these legendary American fighters. Both aircraft were the pinnacle of military technology at the time, technology that helped win the war in the European and Pacific Theaters in World War Two, and went on to continue the defense of freedom in the Korean War. The Class of ‘45’s mission is to preserve and honor the service of American military men and women, both then and now. In flying these legendary machines, we remember their service, their contributions, and our obligation to never let their sacrifices be in vain.
