This aircraft was purchased by Dick Pack and Kevin La Rosa from the estate of the late Bill Jones in about 1999. It has most recently been registered with DK Warbirds. This Mustang was also owned by the late Joe Kasparoff during the 1980's.It flew as: "The Healer" # 39 by Skip Holm at the Reno Air Races during this time.
It is not 45-11558
45-11558 @ shafter when owned by Bill Jones shortly after purchase from Kasperoff
This is P-51D N151BJ, 44-74829. it also contains parts of 44-73574 and has also carried id of 45-11558.
Hmmm ... I was searching for my proof that this was not 45-11558, but instead found an image that is marked 45-11558! Looks like you guys are right and I goofed and was wrong. Nice work.
Joe Kasperoff is only late of the Warbird Scene, not of life. Still alive.
