When I was younger, I worked extensively on Dr. Bill Veatch‘s P51 at the Olympia Airport. One of my favorite moments was when I got to taxi her. It was one of the most amazing things I’ve ever done.
I was promised a flight, but unfortunately the wrecked happened.
I still have loads of pictures doing the rebuild, even of the stripped down VW that was used for pushing/pulling her in & out of the hanger.
I also kept a copy of the Olympian from her final tragic flight.
I sure miss those days!!

Dave Daly, that was the only P-51 in a museum in Venezuela. FAV did not had P-51s. It was received with the FAB paint scheme with the shark teeth, and then painted in a fake FAV paint scheme in gray. Thanks for solving this, it was a true headache. Could you please share with us photos of the restoration? Please write to alejandro.irausquin at gmail dot com

Dr. Mark Fouche was my uncle. He removed the rear tank in that plane so he could carry a passenger. I was fortunate enough that he took me for a ride in it when I was 12. That was 50 years ago but man what a ride it was. Even with headphones on tat rolls royce engine was totally deafening and worth every moment. I didn't know my uncle well but what I do remember on our visits was he was a real character. I remember he used to take that plane to air races and I seem to recall he also had a spare rolls royce engine. Anyway I've got an old black and white photo of the sae plane that was taken when I was 12 and went for that one ride with Uncle Mark.

As a youth, I lived about a quarter mile west of Whiteman Airport. I always thought there was a maroon and a yellow mustang at Whiteman, but now it sound like it was the same plane. While in my house, sometimes I could hear it coming and I would run out the front door to see it, the maroon one. As it flew over, It would often be at a low altitude and sound to me like it was at full throttle. To me, it was the most incredible thing to see and hear. I heard rumors that it crash in the desert. I'm glad to hear that wasn't the case. Truly a magnificent plane!

I was a helicopter pilot for Simplex Time Recorder and was at Chatham airport and witnessed that last flight of The Passion wagon. George came in at about 800' below an overcast and
as he broke left downwind the p 51
Continued the roll upside down into the trees.
Later I was told the propeller shaft had broken..
I guess the accident report did not show this.
This was a sad day for me to witness this Event..

I was a neighbor of George and his family in Wolcott, CT. My parents knew George and his wife. Us kids all knew each other. We lived on Hitchcock Lake and I remember as a small kid, the distant distinct rumble of that Rolls engine and I knew it was George coming in over the lake. He would make a couple low passes at what seemed like full throttle. Then his last pass was a dive and barrel roll clean out of sight. I called it the Harley in the sky!! RIP George.

Thank you for sharing that story of your time with my uncle John. He had some amazing airplanes and automobiles. I spent a couple of weeks with him in Tampa after I graduated from high school. I flew as a passenger in the Bonanza that you made the deal on. John was a lot of fun to hang out with.

Jack Silker did not own 2116. I bought it in 1966 from Tony Mulhern of Hallmark Homes thru Mustangs Unlimited in Atlanta Ga. When I went to Vietnam, I stored it at Mustangs Unlimited then with Jack Sliker who kept it up while I was away flying attack helicopters. Later I sold it to Dick Durant of Westernair in 1972. The plane was a Mustangs Unlimited conversion and had 110 gal drop tanks.
