I'm not sure if this is the best location for this post, so I took a guess. (Mike, if you need to move it to another location, please do so!) This is a beautiful restoration of a P-51D-5 flown by Texas native Jack Ilfrey, an ace of the 20th FG. He also flew a P-38J with the same name. This Mustang is a faithful replica to the original, with the exception of the dorsal fin strake, which was not fitted to the D-5 that Major Ilfrey flew. This Mustang is based here where I live and I get to see it every time Bruce flies it, as the traffic pattern takes it over my house! Got to see it again last week end at our bi-annual airshow. Bruce is a former USN F-18 pilot who has an opthomology practice here in San Antonio, and in addition to being an outstanding pilot, is one of the nicest people you could hope to meet. I am waiting for my 1/48 Airfix Mustang to arrive so I can build it as a tribute to both airmen. I hope you enjoy the photos.
