After 4 years of work the Cavanaugh Museum P-51, 44-72339 N251JC is flying again in colours of "Brat III". These are the original markings of this WWII Vet P-51. Flown by Lt. Hjalmar Johnsen of the 9th Air Force, 370th Fighter Group, 401st Fighter Squadron. Hjalmar Johnsen Bio
Major work was performed by R B Airframes in Dennison Tx and Ezell Aviation in Breckenridge finalized the restoration. Photos are by Scott Slocum at My Bombshells
Congrats to the Cavanaugh Flight Museum and to all involved in very successful restoration. Nice to see a P-51 in original markings.
