Air Racing Champion Steve Hinton Jr. took to the skies of Idaho over Labor Day weekend, 2017, flying the highly modified P-51 Mustang “Voodoo” to a speed of 531.53 mph, the fastest speed ever achieved in the world for a piston engine propeller driven airplane. 

The average speed recorded by Hinton tops the 528.3 mph recorded by Lyle Shelton back in 1989, though Shelton’s record was officially retired due to changes of the sporting code by the Fédération Aéronautique Internationale.
