Case 23    Monday 10 Dec 2018 by Ken Lantz N651D
N651D was owned by Johnny Bolton of Maitand, Fl. He named the plane “Hi Honey”. When he purchased N651D, it was painted in civilian colors of white, orange and black. Bolton repainted it in military Colors (Silver with red candy stripes on tail and yellow and red itrim on wing tips and nose. JBB was the ID on the fuselage. I had the privilege of riding in this Mustang on several occasions. Norm kept the bird spotless. Tragically Johnny and Norm perished in a crash on the way back from Texas to Florida along with Don Plumb in his P-51. The photo below is not N651D. Johnny Bolton previously owned a P-38 (N3JB) and T-6 prior to the P-51 N651D.

This was the P-51 auctioned about 2016. A spare Merlin V1650-9 was also auctioned with it, which I had sold to Ken Scholz back in 1974.

Notice the Canadian DC-4 "North Star" in the background? It was part of Air Caicos, all white with a lightning bolt down the side in either black or dark blue (I don't remember which) and was aptly name "Moby 1". Was really cool to hear 4 Merlins singing at one time.
