The Bremont Horsemen Flight Team first took off over a decade ago as the world’s only P-51 Mustang formation aerobatic team. Since that time, the team has grown into flying other platforms including F8F Bearcats, F4U Corsairs, F-86 Sabres and most recently, the P-38 Lightning. Despite changing the aircraft they pilot through a 12-minute routine set to award winning composer James Horner’s music, the Bremont Horsemen continue to embody a basic philosophy of flight: ESCAPE LIFE’S GRAVITY. They fly because they love it. They fly because it’s their getaway. They fly to honor the historic aircraft they are privileged to ride.
The Bremont Horsemen for 2014 are Steve Hinton flying lead with Dan Friedkin and Ed Shipley sticking tight to his wings. The Team’s spirit is not represented by individual pilots, particular airplanes, or specific routines. Instead, they are always looking up, searching the skies for life’s next adventure.
