P-51 Mustang Flying Over Lake Martin


Have you ever seen some World War II era planes flying over Lake Martin and wondered what is going on?

See the above video I ran across from reading the lakemartin.com forum. According to the video credits, this pilot is Billy Strickland flying his P-51 Mustang – “Ain’t Misbehavin’.” The credits also say he’s in Birmingham, but a quick view tells me he is flying over Lake Martin, out of Willow Point’s airport – Russell Field.

This is a really cool video if you have some time to watch it. They must have put two or three GoPro cameras on the plane because they switch angles back and forth. I have been at the end of Coosa County Road 20, at the old Water’s Edge development, when several of them have roared in an out of Russell Field. The airport is maybe a mile away as the crow flies, across the water. It sends chills down your spine. If not, check in to the morgue because you might lack a pulse.

Willow Point is the only neighborhood on Lake Martin with its own airstrip. According to them, it’s 4,500 feet long. If you are interested in waterfront homes or lots for sale in Willow Point, click here for my neighborhood page. It shows all the listings and has a video tour by land and water.

Willow Glynn is its sister neighborhood, and is actually across the street from Russell Field. If you wanted the absolute closest home to Russell Field, you might select Willow Glynn (click here for a video tour).

Or, if you don’t want to be inside the gates of Willow Point or Willow Glynn, but want to be close by water, check out my Parker Creek neighborhood page for listings and a tour.

I am happy to help you with real estate around Lake Martin. I can’t fly a plane. As a matter of fact, I am not very good at flying a toy quadcopter.
