Having looked at this photo again, and with the added knowledge of just having seen a different photo of this line- up I can add that the 3rd P-51D is N469P which crashed in Atlanta, GA on April 8, 1973. The fifth Mustang is not Bill Ross N2112 but rather N2251D after being rebuilt following the oxygen- bottle explosion at Oshkosh 70.

Case not closed. The plane IS NOT at the Venezuelan Aeronautical Museum. It was sold to a particular colector.

I recently bought some old Air Classics magazines. In the April 1977 edition there is a pic of this Mustang. It is in the paint scheme of the picture at the top of this page but in badly weathered condition. The plane was at Blackfoot, Idaho and the caption of the pic said that the owner also had a Wildcat in poor condition. The FM2s number is N5891? . The last numeral is hidden. It could be a 3,6,8,9,0. I will do some research today.

Surely you remember the days when Bruce and Jeff would rent a Cessna full of gas so to land on the top of Santa Catalina to pay tie-down fees. We then walked over to eat a Hamburger, Fries and a Coke only so to get back in the plane in just enough time to make it back with-in three hours engine running time for around $55. So how are the so called Golden Years doing you? I work for a Home Remodeling company since 2010 and I am married to Cyndi Blackman since 1989. Are your two sisters still living? Love to hear from you. Drop a line or two to your long time friend, Jeff. I'd like to hear from you.

I just stumbled over this site. So very cool to see how many people still remember such a great man and a great plane. I was fortunate enough to have spent most of my younger life around George and his family as I was best friends with his step son. A great man, a very smart businessman, an awesome provider and a hell of a person to call a friend. I'll never forget the airshows cleaning his planes, the rides in those planes and the cool parties with the War Birds where we used to sneak beers when no one was looking. And what a pilot. He always said that when he goes it would be in that plane. Miss ya George and thanks for everything you did for me and your family. You were a great man, friend and mentor!

Bob Love flying Brassfield's Cavalier Mustang, now at the EAA Museum at Oshkosh in 2018. If picture taken at the Mojave Air Races, I'm in the backseat. Bob and I were close friends and went to most airshows and races together. I was a photojournalist for a large newspaper at the time.

On the day of the accident I was on the side of the road watching the Mustang doing aerobatics, I was very close as I watched it dive vertically into the ground. I was the first on the seine and I remember that the crash site was an almost circular disruption of the soil as if it had been ploughed , there was no sign of the aircraft at all it was all underground the only part was the canopy some distance away. To this day it still haunts me.

George gave me a ride one day after I refueled his plane. Was working at Chatham while learning to fly. This was in the 1984. So sad to hear if his death.
