Who Case: 179
2020 and still not entirely solved, due to grey transaction, FAB-504 (ex 45-11458) gifted to FAV museum ca. 1977 as thanks for F-86 transfer, still there in 1984 but painted with FAV colors.
Disappeared thereafter probably to USA, 1/3 fiberglass copy placed onsite (laughable).
ex 45-72059 mentioned above was FAB-513, sold through Sanford Aviation directly from Bolivia, currently N951HB, not the same airplane.
FAB-504 was not the only Mustang squirreled out of Bolivia, but one that will forever hide in infamy, as it was perfectly set for preservation in a reputable museum, before being “recovered”.
