This one has had no tries in a few months ...

Since Dick Phillips is the master of hard-to-solve P-51 Who? cases, it is time to step in and give some hints.

This P-51 is flying today. This P-51 was flying in WWII ETO with the 357th FG and carried the same paint job years back. The "N"number a few years back carried the last 5 digits of the serial number.This P-51 now carries the paint of a 361st FG P-51.

It should be easy now (too easy).

I agree with Marc Koelich - only note of interest is that this a/c also flew with the 167th FS WV ANG (The 'Coonskin Boys') and carried the nickname 'Stump Jumper' (plus a painting of Woody Woodpecker) there, too !
