FSX P-51D "Daddy's Girl" (N20MS). This is a repaint for the Warbirdsim P-51D "Mustang Tales" and replacement textures for the "Restored Part 2" payware addons. This repaint depicts the restored P-51D-20-NA 44-63807, registered as N20MS, owned by Charles Somers of Sacramento, CA. The aircraft is known to have been delivered to England and accepted by the 8th Air Force, but no combat assignments are known (likely remaining a pool aircraft). Light on hours/practically new, the aircraft was sent back to the US at the end of WWII and in 1950 was acquired by the Uruguayan Air Force, becoming FAU 272, and later was acquired by the Bolivian Air Force in 1960, then becoming FAB 506. The aircraft's military career ended in the mid 1970's with the aircraft becoming registered in Canada in 1977 as C-GXUO, and later as N20MS in the US in 1985. Acquired by Jon Vesely in 2001, the aircraft was sent to Midwest Aero Restorations for ground-up restoration which was completed in 2004, winning Reserve WWII Grand Champion at Oshkosh. The aircraft is finished in the authentic markings of Maj. Ray Wetmore's P-51D "Daddy's Girl", assigned to the 370th FS, 359th FG, 8th AF. This is part 2 of an 8 part series of Midwest Aero Mustangs.
