This one has had no tries in a few months ...
Since Dick Phillips is the master of hard-to-solve P-51 Who? cases, it is time to step in and give some hints.
This P-51 is flying today. This P-51 was flying in WWII ETO with the 357th FG and carried the same paint job years back. The "N"number a few years back carried the last 5 digits of the serial number.This P-51 now carries the paint of a 361st FG P-51.
It should be easy now (too easy).
Hi Santa,The deniable Mustang on the picture could be4 4-63810, P-51D-20NA, c/n 122-31536 With 357thFG during WW2 as Stump Jumper B6*C, On display for many years, rebuilt to flying condition in 1972, registration was N63810 for some time, and the aircraft was painted as Stump Jumper. Now registered N451BC, "Angel's Playmate".

I agree with Marc Koelich - only note of interest is that this a/c also flew with the 167th FS WV ANG (The 'Coonskin Boys') and carried the nickname 'Stump Jumper' (plus a painting of Woody Woodpecker) there, too !
OOPS! You guys got this one right, but I overlooked it at the last update. Good Work.
