Test your P-51 memory, knowledge and research ability!
by Dick Phillips
Tom Kuchinski's P-51. Based at Timmerman Field in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Tom unfortunately was killed in this airplane after entering a stall.
Martin / Swiss Mustangs
I concur with Tom see case #177 Martin
When I was a young boy growing up in Milwaukee,Wi Mitchell field was my back yard. I remember always watching a powder blue P-51 doing T & G'S,one day my older brother took me to the FBO and I was able to actually touch the plane. This was in the late sixties or early seventies.I also remember it getting a new paint job, does anybody know if this could be the same plane? Or does anybody have a picture of that powder blue mustang from Milwaukee. Thank you for any help.

Hi Steve, The Mustang you are talking about is most likely Tom Kuchinsky's other 51, N6165U. Both Mustangs received the camo paint, but this one, N6518D had been white with a red cheat line previously! T J
