P51 'Galveston Gal' Lost

Postby Gully » Thu Oct 24, 2013 8:19 am

CNN is reporting that the dual seat conversion P51 operated by Lone Star Flight Museum has been lost over Chocolate Bay in Texas. The aircraft was found in 3 to 5 feet of water - both on board killed. :( :( :(

Condolences to all involved.

There is a little more info here.

Passenger was a Brit, apparently.

One Olympus 301 has twice the power of a complete F1 starting grid.
XM655 has four of them, all serviceable.

I'm really quite upset::::::::::

The Mustang is nothing, however,
compared with the lives lost and
the loss to their families....
