    My hometown still surprises me...

    Though I was born here (Hilversum, the Netherlands, 77.000 inhabitants) almost 72 years ago, and was only away in the early 70-ties for a couple of years, there are places that I seldom visit. Not that I dislike them, but only because there's nothing that brings me there. So a rare visit to one of the outskirts struck me with embarrasment: had never thought to find THIS there: in incomplete P-51 on the roof of a building company. But it's a pity that it has to end its life there, wish I had the money to put it in a museum......

    Looking at the pictures, I don't think that it is a real P-51. Too many things do not look right, especially the wings, the exhaust stack, the windscreen and canopy. I think this might be a replica that someone built, perhaps for advertising purposes.

    Yeah, could be. As it was a Sunday, there was nobody there to ask. And at this moment I'm in France on holidays, so you'll have to be patient. But when I'm back home I'll go and ask.

    I think I saw that in a 'recent' edition of Verenigde vleugels magazine, but of course if you need it, you can't find it.... Pretty sure it was fake though.
