Jumping off a WWII Mustang Fighter plane

We were at an airshow with WWII restored planes and my son was excited about seeing this piece of American Aviation history; after looking inside the cockpit, he jumped off the wing. Particularly poignant because his great grandfather, my grandfather, Col. Shreve was in both world wars.
