I am posting to document my large EPO P-51D Mustang of 57 inch wing span by FMS and affectionately know as the "Shangri-La"

A certain Capt. Don Gentile who also flew the P-51"D" version but, according to the history books the "D" was for a War Bonds tour but, nevertheless it was registered as an official warbird for action.

Here is an early picture of Capt. Don Gentile along with Lt. Johnny Godfrey posing next to a "B" model.
