Long Beach Mustang


Recommended Posts

Some shots from Long Beach :).


Orbx partners - Aeroplane Heaven P51 Mustang and CanadianFlightSimStudios CYAZ Tofino/Long Beach Airport in MSFS.


CYAZ is situated within the Pacific Rim National Park Reserve. Immediately adjacent to Long Beach, it is 7 miles southeast of Tofino, British Columbia, Canada.


RCAF Station Tofino was constructed in 1941 to defend Canada's Pacific coast from Axis attack during the Second World War. In 1945 the site was decommissioned, to be reopened again as a radar station in the Pinetree Line in 1955 to defend against Soviet attack.The radar station was closed in 1958, at which time it became a civilian airfield. It is currently owned and operated by Alberni-Clayoquot Regional District.


This particular P51 served with RCAF 424 Sqn.  A beautiful restoration, it is painted in camouflage as the original Y2-C of 442 Squadron RCAF. Today CF-VPM is owned by the Michael Potter Foundation and flown by Vintage Wings of Canada at Gatineau, Quebec.

Very nice set Paul with yet another cool interior.  It’s owned by the Michael Potter foundation?  Is this Harry’s older brother? :D
