P-51 Mustang Military Aircraft - Military Travel Exchange
This was the plane that launched Confederate Air Force (now Commemorative Air Force). Aquired by founding members of CAF including Loyd P. Nolen himself. This airplane is not only historically significant, but thoroughly engrained in CAF's heritage as well. The Dixie Wing was selected to become the new home for the North American P-51 Mustang "Red Nose" in 2002. Originally flown and maintained by The West Houston Squadron now renamed The Houston Wing. The engine was changed in 1984. I helped.
