Git It Git It.

The reason that all of us are here is because we love aviation. Vintage warbirds to be precise. Although getting your hands on a P-51 Mustang or Spitfire is exclusively reserved for people with endless money (i.e.: actors, business moguls ect.), you can still get something slightly less iconic.

We’ve looked around the internet for plane auctions and sale sites, and found a bunch that were built in the 40s and 50s that are still airworthy. Not only that, they’re pretty reasonably priced.

Now keep in mind the obvious. This is just the price of the plane. You’d have to consider storage, fuel, licensing and upkeep but if you’re ready to pull the trigger, here are some you should look at.
