This beautifully restored Mustang is based here in San Antonio where I live, and flies over my house weekly. The owner is the nicest fellow and has let me shoot countless detail photos at airshows. One of the nicest restored P-51D's, as you can see from the restoration and detail photos. Bruce flies her with the replica 108 gallon paper tanks all the time. Jack Ilfrey's other 20th FG mount, a P-38J, was also named Happy Jack's Go Buggy. I had the honor and pleasure of meeting him years ago at one of our annual IPMS Alamo Squadron model contests. I hope you will enjoy the story and the photos. There are decals for this one in 1/72 and 1/48, BTW.

Mike
