I have this one as a maybe...

Delivered new to Lakeland, Fl this P-51K 44-12126 served as a stateside trainer. To the War Assets Admin in 45 she was disposed of as N9140H to a civilian buyer/dealer for the new state of Israel. The photograph must have been taken at this time as she looks pretty tired. Finally a warrior, the Mustang must have fought well, for it is rumored to still be extant in an Israeli museum! I do not know which one of the "anonymous" display mustangs she is... Some lists have her production number as 111-30259 while I come up with 111-30659.

Does anyone know more about the Israeli connection?
