FSX P-51D "Was That Too Fast" (N151JT). This is a repaint for the Warbirdsim P-51D "Mustang Tales" and "Restored Part 2" payware addons. This repaint depicts the restored P-51D-20-NA 44-63577, registered as N151JT, owned by Lawrence Classics, based at Bentonville, AR. This aircraft was originally completed by North American Aviation on November 20, 1944, and used in State-side training until 1946. It was acquired by the Uruguayan Air Force in 1950, becoming FAU 265. After being retired, the aircraft remained on museum display in Uruguay until 1985 when it was sold and imported back into the US. Floating around as a restoration project, the aircraft was acquired by John Turgyan in 1994 and eventually sent to Midwest Aero Restorations in 2008 for ground-up restoration. During restoration the aircraft was sold to Jon Vesley and was completed in 2013, winning Oshkosh Post-WWII Grand Champion. The aircraft is finished as a Korean War era F-51D, in silver paint rather than bare metal, painted in the authentic markings of a 36th Fighter-Interceptor Squadron, 12th Fighter-Bomber Group F-51D named "Was That Too Fast". This is part 6 of an 8 part series of Midwest Aero Mustangs. By John Terrell.
