Great shots Steven. You captured a rarely seen P-51H model in that formation flight.

Thanks Paul, that P-51H is Crazy Horse. I can tell that you know your old fighters to recognize the H model.

I have other shots of that plane. Here are a couple of that plane on the taxiway.

Great shots of "Crazy Horse". A lot of H models were used in the Reserve & Air Guard into the late fifties. In 1987 I got a ride in the back seat of John Baugh's P-51D "Miss Coronado" which served as Bob Hoovers ride for many years. Unforgettable!

Very interesting, that must have been a thrilling ride! I've never had that opportunity.

(The "Miss Coronado" that you rode in has changed hands several times, it's now named "Nooky Booky IV", and is currently located in France.)

Everyone who thinks that someone who names one of the greatest prop fighters ever made, Nooky Booky, shouldn't be allowed to fly it, raise your hand.

Ted, Ted, you get an "F" in history. Very disappointing.

It was named in Honor of the P-51s flown by ace Maj "Kit" Carson in WWII. All of his P-51s were named "Nooky Booky" . By the time the war ended he was in his 4th P-51, so you had "N-B" I thru IV. Now go stand in the corner and read your history book.

Hey Paul: I just came across a recent photo of Nooky Booky IV on another web site. This is the same plane you flew in when it was named the Miss Coronado. Thought that you might enjoy seeing it.

Steve.
