The Grey Ghost flying by at the Halls 2018 Airshow, I wasn't expecting to see this beauty there as it wasn't on the performers list. It was definitely a nice suprise!

1st Lt. W.K. Baker Jr. Was at the controls of P-51B (43-6461) "Hot Pants" when he ran out of fuel. Baker, having no choice, was forced to land in neutral Sweden where the aircraft would be interned. This wasn't the only Mustang to go down in Sweden, at least ten others shared the same fate. However only four would be repairable after the forced landings, two B models, and two D models. After repair these aircraft would be used by the Swedish Air Force.

This photo, taken by US Office of War Information photographer Alfred T. Palmer at the NAA Inglewood CA plant, is easily one of my favorite wartime pictures. Not only does it show a ramp full with Mustang 1's and P-51A's, but it's also a very high quality color shot for 1942.

@alert5_photography captured this dramatic shot of P-51D "Glamourous Gal" (44-74453) while at the @american_airpower_museum. This aircraft has since been restored by Midwest Aero, and now bear's the name "Frances Dell". #northamerican #naa #p51 #mustang #v12 #rollsroyce #packard #merlin #v1650 #hamiltonstandard #fighter #taildragger #usaaf #airforce #ww2 #worldwartwo #warbird #warbirdsofamerica #aviation #airplanes #avgeek #avnerd #keepemflying

Sharing this beautiful shot from @warbirdphotos, make sure to check out his page for quality warbird content. In the foreground is @planesoffame P-51D "Wee Willy ll" being flown by John Hinton, and @psairmuseum's P-51D "Bunny" in the background flown by Mark Moodie on the way to the Apple Valley Airshow.

We'd like to wish the @usairforce a happy 71st birthday! On this date in 1947, the Air Force was established as a separate branch of the military under the National Security Act of 1947. 📷 Scott Slocum⠀ -

It was always easy to pick out one of E.D. Weiners Mustangs from a crowd due to their distinctive paintschemes. Mr. Wiener seemed to be partial to checkerboard aircraft as he had one in white and black, and the one above in yellow and black. This aircraft was also briefly painted up in Zebra stripes while wearing the name "High Time II". Above she bare's the name of her sponsor, "Bardahl Miss" (44-74506). This one was considered to be his pylon racer, while his other Mustang "Bardahl ll" (44-72902) was for cross-country racing. Both aircraft are still around today. "Bardahl Miss" is now "Lady B" which raced at Reno this week, and "Bardahl ll" has been restored to her former racing glory by Gosshawk, but it unfortunately never leaves the hangar.

"Dago Red", a legendary racer, and one of the early Super Mustangs that inspired aircraft such as "Strega" and "Voodoo". With a claimed 3,600 HP, "Dago" was capable of reaching speeds in excess of 500 mph on the track. Unfortunately, she's no longer racing, or flying at the moment. Some have reported seeing her in storage still in race configuration, others believe she will eventually be returned to stock as many other racers have. If you have any info on her current state, please comment below or send me a message. No matter which direction the owner/s decide to go, #longlivedagored

Mustang purists, you may want to scroll past this post. For those Mustang purists who decided to stick around you'll be relieved to learn the fuselage was built from scratch, while the wings and horizontal stabilizer came from a Learjet, so no Mustangs were harmed in the making of this radically modified racer. This project was started by a man named Bill Rogers, and he would later team up with veteran air racer, Gary Levitz. Levitz previously raced a Red P-51D named "Miss Ashley", and so this one was named "Miss Ashley ll". Like the late "Red Baron", this aircraft was powered by a Griffon powerplant turning contra-rotating props. It was believed this would be a great contender, but due to a fatal crash caused by empenage seperation while being piloted by Levitz in the '99 Reno Races, the aircrafts true potential as a racer will never be known. RIP Gary Levitz.
