Remarks: Here it is! A tribute to the Tuskegee Airmen this C model is very very rare. Built in 1942, it was originally delivered to the RAF, then to the U.S Army Air Force, then finally to the Dominican Republic which had been flying P-51s in active service until 1984! '"Tuskegee Airmen" unfortunately suffered an unavoidable engine failure in May 2004, and crashed near Red Wing, Minnesota. The pilot, Don Hinz, was credited with avoiding injuries on the ground and avoiding a post-crash fire. Don survived the accident only to succumb to his injuries the next day.' Here it is in its glory looking absolutely superb having flown its first flight just a few days before AirVenture 09! Thanks to everyone and the CAF who made this appearance possible!
