CAF Red Tail Flies Again

August 17th, 2009

Restoration is complete on the rare P-51C Mustang that was nearly destroyed in a 2004 fatal accident involving ICAS member Don Hinz. Painted in the colors of the Tuskegee Airmen squadron, the aircraft’s $1 million restoration was completed just in time for the red-tailed Mustang to make a late July trip to Oshkosh, Wisconsin for EAA AirVenture, where it appeared on static display in AeroShell Square for a full week.
