I've been on a pretty intensive quest for two Mustangs, a TF and a P51D. There are only 18 true TF models left in the world. Right at the moment, the only 51 I'm interested in is Double Trouble Too out in Virginia. This is the fulfillment of a life long dream, so I have no intention of rushing it. Lot's to consider, a lot to learn. Additionally, it's sobering to search through the serial numbers on the Warbird Registry, look deeper into the history of each of those aircraft from delivery to the military to the present day. One finds the words "crashed" and "fatality" repeatedly along side the names of owners with the same dream I have entertained, sobering, yes indeed.
There has never been a doubt that we'd put a Six back in the hangar at some point. Although, any Mustang pilot will tell you that the 51 makes a great trainer if you want to learn to fly a Texan, and not all of that is tongue in cheek. Chuck Gardner has been kind enough to allow me to buy him lunch next week, at which point I will wear him out with my quest for Mustang knowledge. Thanks in advance Chuck!
