This is N41749 44-63663, ex FAG-354. I took this photo at Oshkosh in August 1974. This is still N41749, but as MISS MARILYN II, owned by Jeff Williams and Dick Hansen.
this picture shows another ex-FAG ship, in this case FAG-354. It is 44-63663, which saw service with the 186th FS, MT ANG, and also with an unit of the MN ANG; 1958 it went to Trans Florida Aviation and was sold to Guatemala in 1962 (Another source states the delivery date to Guatemala as April 8, 1958). In 1972, the a/c returned to the U.S., receiving registration N41749 (Don Hull), being transferred to Connie Edwards during 1978. In 1996 it was acquired by Richard Hanson and after restoration now flies as 'Miss Marylin II' in the colours of the 55th FG 343rd FS 8th USAAF ETO (where it is believed to actually have served during WW 2).
Miss Marilyn is the P51 that My partner and I bought from Conne Edwards in Big Spring Texas and restored.It was the most researched and detailed Mustang at that time.
My great grandpa,Richard Ozinga flew that plane during world war 2 and named it after my great grandma Mariyn Ozinga!!!
