Mercy Flight Southeast Mercy Flight Southeast fundraiser offers a chance to fly a P-51 Mustang.
LEESBURG, Fla. - May 18, 2018 - EntSun -- You don't have to be a history buff to appreciate the legacy of the P-51 Mustang. Introduced in 1940 to provide air protection during bombing missions, the Mustang was a formidable foe to the enemy while being a World War II Allied pilot's dream to fly.

Stallion 51 is partnering with Mercy Flight Southeast to raffle off a chance to take control of the WWII legend while helping the charity's worthy mission.

Mercy Flight Southeast's network of more than 700 volunteer pilots provides free air transportation to life-saving medical appointments for people who otherwise could not get there. While pilots donate their airplanes, fuel and flight hours to complete more than 2,500 flights each year, the non-profit organization relies on fundraising to pay for support services and to keep passengers and pilots in the air.

The Raffle prize includes a half-day P-51 orientation experience at Stallion 51's headquarters at the Kissimmee Gateway Airport (KISM):
