 Product Description

Panel Size: 18" x 40"
Flown by: Major George Preddy, CO.

Plane Type: P-51 Mustang


This is Preddy's last P-51 from the 328FS, 352FG, before his death on Christmas Day, 1944. He had shot down two Me-109's southwest of Koblenz and then turned to dive on a FW-190 on the deck. He flew into American anti-aircraft fire and took fatal hits before plunging into the ground. Preddy was the wars' top scoring Mustang ace with 26.83 aerial, 3 probable and 4 damaged. A stylized barber pole was painted on the right nose cowl to reflect on the part-time career of his crew chief. Extensive research was done to find the correct colors for the group. Collaborating with group members for details, a good match was found. At least two shades of blue paint was supplied by the British for the nose cowls. The latter being the lighter shade. The barber pole was on the other side, but illustrated here for good measure. PLANE JUNKIE - "Cripes A' Mighty" Nose Art Panel (P-51 Mustang)
