TM, I think it was the P-51B painted in the Tuskeegee Airmens colors. Sorry, don't remember the name.

Was this the P-51 that crashed near the Van Nuys airport, near the Apollo R/C in LA?

I don't think it's the Tuskagee airmen '51. It's supposedly rebuildable. This one looks like a total loss.

If I remember correctly, the Tuskeegee airmen painted the whole tail section red.This one looks like it may be from the 357th fighter group.It may have had red and yellow checkered prop cone.Damn, thats a sad sight.Awesome bird.

On 20 February 2003, pilot Jim Shuttleworth perished in the crash of his North American TF-51D Mustang N93TF near Urbana, Indiana. The crash occurred shortly after 5 pm. Witnesses told authorities that the plane appeared to be doing aerobatics when the engine appeared to quit.

The plane was obviously deadstick when it hit. The two visible propeller tips are undamaged. Very sad. =8-(

Great photos - nice to read the occasional informative comment. Humour is possibly the least funny on the internet though...

A friend of Jim's
All these "humor" comments are extremely disrespectful... My father was on the site of this accident... he was the mechanic of this plane and the last to see Jim alive..

He is missed.
Had known Jim and his family for a long time. I'll never forget the day he took me up in the T-6 and let me fly for a while. Just never got my ride in Scat-VII before this happenend. Truly a sad day. Would still love to find out if the plane rebuild has been finished and where it ended up.

Fred, I told you not to fire your gun at that civilian airplane! Well Bob, I was just trying to scare him a little. You did a little more than that, Fred. Well damn Bob, I just got over that last chewing out! Do you suppose you can get the boss to cut me a little slack, Bob? I don't think so Fred. You sure didn't cut that pilot any slack.

to all those asking wut P-51 it is: a crashed one * insert troll face here*

As a former P-51 combat pilot and presently an EAA , general aviation ,participant I found the humorous comments disturbing. Surely, they were not made by actual pilots. If so, you players need to return to your fun days of pulling wings off flies or perhaps scalding cats.
