Boeing Field, late 80's
by Michael Spreadbury
This is 44-74600. It was sold surplus by the government to DAL-AIR for scrapping. However, DAL-AIR found a buyer for some of the surplus mustangs and sold 74600, registered as N1739B, to the Haitian Air Force, along with three others, N1736B 44-14916, N1738B 44-15655 and N1740B 44-14826. The Haitian AF serials were the last five digits of the serial number. 74600 came back to the USA to Cavalier Aircraft, as a disassembled aircraft.nnIt then went to Gordon Plaskett as parts. Plaskett rebuilt it and it was sold to Bob Bleeg of Mercer Island, WA. Bleeg registered it as N512ED, before selling it to Bob Pond in 1990 and it crashed on a local flight out of Flying Cloud Airport, Eden Prairie, MN in June 1990.
