For twenty five years Sporty's have helped pilots celebrate the Christmas Season with a line of Crystal Christmas Ornaments. This year their ornament features a P-51 Mustang that Sporty's Vice President John Zimmerman describes as "an iconic American airplane that is a rich part of our own aviation history." The P-51, often an airshow favorite, is the best air to air combat fighter ever flown.
I added the P-51 Mustang to my collection which also includes a Cessna 195 (2005), Lockheed Constellation (2006), Spirit of St. Louis (2007), Cirrus (2008). About a third of my tree is now adorned with aviation centric ornaments. If you have a pilot on your gift list or are looking for another way to celebrate aviation during the holidays check out Sporty's line of ornaments.
