This P-51 is beautifully done and everyone who has seen it can attest to that. Dan Martin and crew can be proud of their excellent work on this P-51.
2007: Sept - GML - I have to thank Duane Doyle for his hospitality! I bummed a ride in the King Air for a few legs and then jumped ship for a P-51 seat. Doyle is a classy guy and his P-51 is beautiful!
