I met Mike @ The Confederate Air Force Show, Harlengin, Tx, 1982.
Nice guy for sure. I remember reading about his 51 crashing at Chino airport, after an extensive rebuild. Lost track of it at that point. I'm doubtful the photo was taken at Madera, as I was a committee member for the 'Gathering of Warbirds' the years it was alive and doing well. Nice to be able to find something on the web of Mikes 51.
