The site may be Waterbury, but, could also be at Lockheed in Marietta Georgia. My father in law, Frank Gifford, actually co-developed the C130 pickup system in Mr Gifford's basement in Marietta. Being a Lockheed project engineer, he could gain nothing for claiming any credit. The winch in the system was the heart of the system. Mr Gifford told me that after they reached a design point in the project, Mr Fulton came back in only a few weeks with the completed winch. How on earth, Mr Gifford asked could you get gears cut in such a short time? Why reinvent the wheel, Mr Fulton answered, I just went down to the local International Tractor dealer and bought them off the shelf. Mr Fulton would buzz the Gifford home when he arrived at Marietta to let Frank know he was there. One of my wife's best memories is riding "on boards atop the batteries behind Mr Fulton in the P51. I myself was only lucky enough to speak with Mr Fulton once and briefly when my wife called him after Mr Gifford passed. He was a fine gentleman and great engineer.

Hi from down under regarding 4472059 i rearly think that the grey mustang is 059 is FAB513 i say this because on further investigation FAB 504 an ex RAAF mustang crashed in the early 70s was it repaired or coverted to parts The only way to find out is to get in touch with the Bolivian airforce and look at their records so the mistery continues

My father owned this P-51 for two years before selling it to Vern Peterson in 1968. I rode in the back many times as a youngster and have very fond memories of the sight, sound and smells of the P-51. Back then, it was painted red on the wings and lower half of the fuselage and white on the top of the fuselage with a black highlight stripe running down the length of the fuselage beginning just above the exhaust, and a red stripe on the upper third of the horizontal stabilizer. I was saddened to read of the crash and of the resultant fatality, but am glad that the serial number is still flying.

Interesting info on this plane (N6320T). My brother, Ray, knew of John Steinmetz somehow. I know none of the people mentioned, but I am curious of the tail numbers mentioned. I live in my hometown of Columbus, Ga. I knew a man here in the 60’s and early 70’s named Dick Kestle. He had, at the time, one of the nicest Mustangs out there. N6303T. My only ride in a Mustang was this one. May of 1970. The pilot was George Roberts, who performed maintenance on this plane. He also ferried anything from WW ll as well as worked on them. Raced at Reno and Mojave.
Kestle crashed 6303T near Griffin, Ga and was killed, about June 2, 1972.

Bud Walter Fountain did have a P-51. Flew it over the house on tully rd. when I was 6 or 7. He took it all apart in a hanger out at modesto airport. He was by dad's best friend and they owned a stearman together. Mom made dad sell his interest to bud. All of dad's flying buddies, Bud, pappy, clyde parsons and others died flying. I was named after bud's father.
