Is this the airplane that Bob Abrams was killed in at Las Vegas? F6K 44-12817 Sometimes (or really registered as) also N5151T.

This is the P-51 that Abrams crashed and was killed in. The info I have shows this as 44-74994, N5151. The warbird directory shows N5151T, 44-12817 "flew as N5151" and that it crashed in 1965, killing the pilot Bob Abrams. Perhaps someone out there can clarify this? MM.com
Wow. What a funny feeling to see this picture. I saw Bob crash during the second heat race in 1965. I still live in Las Vegas. Really was sad and I've never forgotten that day. Thanks for the picture. Mike
