About This File

FSX P-51D "Twilight Tear" (N251L). This repaint contains replacement and new files for the Warbirdsim P-51D "Twilight Tear: Then and Now" and "Mustang Tales" payware addons. This repaint depicts the restored P-51D-20-NA 44-63864, registered as N251L, owned by the Fagen Fighters WWII Museum in Granite Falls, MN. The aircraft is a WWII combat-vet restored in the original markings it had in 1945, assigned to Lt. Hubert "Bill" Davis of the 83rd FS, 78th FG, based at Duxford, England. Davis and this aircraft are credited with shooting down three Bf-109's in March 1945. Through the combined efforts of Tri-State Aviation, Odegaard Wings, Warhawks Inc. and AirCorps Aviation, the aircraft was restored to 100% WWII stock configuration with everything working, including the original wartime radio, gun camera, drop tanks, gun sight and armament. Following completion of restoration, and working with the ATF, real .50-cal machine guns were installed, bore-sighted and fired into a purpose-made firing range, in a one-time only event (replica guns have otherwise always been installed). The aircraft won the WWII Grand Champion Award at Oshkosh 2011. The files included provide a complete internal and external depiction of the restored aircraft. By John Terrell.
