    WW2 Mustang Ace & Plane To Reunite at Airventure

    Hi All,

    Some of you may know that I've been working on finding a P-51D Mustang to be painted in honor of Clayton Kelly Gross's mount "LIVE BAIT" of the 354th FG Pioneer Mustang Group.



    Mission finally accomplished! Those of you that attend or are going to attend Airventure in 2010, look for a P-51D Mustang called "LIVE BAIT". The P-51D is the model Gross downed a ME-262 with.

    Check this video of a young Gross: "Live Bait" World War II - P-51 Mustang - Aero Classics Northwest- powered by SmugMug

    Clayton Kelly Gross will be attending OSH to reunite with the plane. His friend, Clyde B. East will also be attending the show.

    Should be a great show this summer, B-17's , C47's, etc.

    See you there!,

    He is a great guy have spoken and emailed him several times about his service.

    better yet pick up his privately published book on himself and the 354th fg. do a google search and find his private web-site, upon purchase he will gladly sign to you as owner of said book.

    should be a good show

    Rip it up !

    Is this the same P-51 that was painted up as "Little Horse" for the last few years? Heard that it was for sale and was wondering where it went.


    A 2006 study found that the average American walks about 900 miles a year. Another study found that Americans drink an average of 22 gallons of beer a year. That means, on average, Americans get about 41 miles per gallon.
