Progress on the Bottisham P51 Mustang

Considerable progress has been made on our P-51 Mustang. Our talented painter, Graham Buchanan is doing a superb job of re-creating Lou IV/Athelene.

We have chosen the colour scheme of Col. Jack Christian, the commanding officer of the 361st Fighter Group at Bottisham. Jack was KIA on August 12th 1944 whilst flying from Bottisham and we hope our Mustang will be a fitting tribute to his memory.

We have acquired wheels and undercarriage legs and hope to fit them soon so that we roll out the Mustang onto the spot where Jack’s original once sat.

The unveiling of the Mustang is scheduled for June 18/19 2022 at our Bottisham at war event.
