P-51 Mustang Mock-up

Last Up-date 30NOV12 by RWillaman

This P-51 Mustang was retrieved from a Cleveland Restaurant.  The wings were damaged in 90 - 100 mile winds. A crew from MAPS went to Cleveland and retrieved the plane in cold, rainy and muddy conditions.  The aircraft mock-up is being restored as a monument to our military pilots.

Recovery crew: Jim Denning, Larry Lewis, Ken Ramsey, Jorg Pawski, Dave Pawski, and Ron Duplain.

MAPS volunteers hard at work removing the mock P-51.
