This is N5427V most likely shot while owned by Robert Fulton. There was a photo on of the aircraft in what looks to be the same location, so I will venture a guess and say it's at Waterbury - Oxford near Oxford, CT.

TJ, you're correct. In fact, I spent just this last weekend looking for a pic I thought I shot of this Mustang at Oxford years back. Good news: found the negative. Bad news: black and white, no date, but it is absolutely this 'Stang.

That is the logo for Robert Fulton's company on the upper portion of the tail. He invented the "skyhook" pilot rescue device.
