the first a/c was "Unrulie Julie", and is a/c s/n 44-74446, with the current registration of NL11451D , and is owned by a Mr. Bruce Jennings, of Carson City, Nevada. It was rebuilt by Square One Aviation of Chino, California after a forced landing it suffered about 3-4 years ago. The wreckage had been purchased by William Speers, a well known Mustang race pilot, who had intended to rebuild the a/c.However, he was killed in another P-51 crash at Reno, due to a faulty Prop governor, before the rebuild could begin. The Mustang in question currently has an overall polished metal scheme, with the name "Saturday Night Special" painted in small red lettering on the engine cowlings. This name reflects the fact that the owner also owns a gun manufacturing company that produces the small type of pistols commonly referred to as a "Saturday Night Special".

The P-51 is "Unruly Julie". It crashed in the 80s but has been rebuilt.

The above photo is of the current polished metal scheme, but it is no longer "Saturday Night Special", but "Checkertail Clan", with no name/nose art painted on the nose. The owner is Nathan Davis of Tipton, Indiana.
