    Neat stuff.

    Hard to imagine getting a Mustang for $755!

    That's a bargain even for 1950's prices! Note though, it wasn't the actual 'Petie 2nd', but a former 12th Air Force machine, painted to represent 'Petie'.

    Use Photoshop or the more simple MS Paint to resize the photo. (In MS Paint it is Stretch and Skew)

    Great photo BTW!

    Not necessarily photos, but Troy White (My favorite aviation artist) painted a lot of the Bluenosers birds on his website.

    Bluenosers

    Awesome paintings no doubt about it.

    EDIT:

    Here are a couple of Bluenoser shots I just found.

    Photos are from Littlefriends gallery of the 352nd FG and the sources of the photos are cited there.











    And photos of George Preddy's Cripes a' Mighty.

















    Here is an interesting one, 487th bird with Shark Mouth noseart flown by Major John Bennett.





    Personally I like the closeup on Preddy's Cripes a' Mighty. Awesome photo.

    It is great to see more pics of my father's plane. It is the one with "Eleen & Jerry" on the side. He looks pretty jaunty standing on that wing, huh?

    Done Erich. The source of the photos are from the Littlefriends website (As I inserted the link above). Also, sorry about that.

    Im not sure if it is just the photograph, but the one P-51B/C that has the invasion stripes . It looks like the plane is olive drab and has the blue nose? Tail # 36707 ? Two photographs above the one with the sharkmouth.
