Twas the night before Christmas…mustang style
When we were suddenly confronted by an old flying ace.
He said “File me a flight plan, I gotta get there.”
And the old man walked out to that P-51.
The prop came to life. . . that big Allison rumbled.
He taxied on out and he turned it around.
Then he said to himself, “I’m in for a ride.”
The tailwheel came up as he started to roll.
And that mighty V-12 was all you could hear.
The blue flames were flying from each shiny stack.
No ice on that airframe, it didn’t have time.
He looked up above him and saw a Lear jet.
Gimmee pistons, and props and lots of avgas!
But weather had covered the runway with snow.
Because the only way in was a full I-L-S.
The ceiling was zero, visibility was none.
For an overhead break to diminish his speed.
Pulled into his break, we just knew he would crash.
Then over the threshold, we saw landing lights.
And I see enough runway to land this machine.”
“Next year, I’m stickin’ with my reindeer and sleigh.”
