History / Previous Identities:


WWII Vet: 357th FG, 362nd FS

1972: N63810, Ed Maloney Ontario CA
1972: Capt. Robin Collord USAF, Merced CA
P-51 had approx 250 flight hours ... ferry flight from Fullerton to Chino for restoration
1972: Restored to flying condition, adopted 45-11367
1973: N63810, Robin Collord, flew as "Stump Jumper"


Col Collord found the nose art "Stump Jumper" etched in the cowling. By chance, Collord met an ex-USAF pilot at an airshow who flew 810 post WWII. He had an engine failure over Tennessee and had to belly land in a field. After committing to the only clearing in the area he noticed many pine tree stumps about 2 feet high throughout the field. He landed and did not hit any of them, hence the name "Stump Jumper". The P-51 was dismantled and trucked out for repairs.

1993: Aug, N451BC, Joseph Newsome, "Angels Playmate"

This P-51 is a tribute to the late Bruce W. Carr USAAF
