Back in the late 70's I was taking flight lessons from my brother at the Ftc lvd airport which at the time I think the FBO was owned by Max. I spent a lot of time there and got to talk to Max a fair amount. He was a real down to earth guy and easy to talk to. One day I asked what it would take to get a flight in the Boomer just in passing, he replied" Go grab a couple of parachutes out of my office" I don't know how many people get to ride for over an hour of aerobatics in a P-51 but it is a memory I will never forget for as long as I live. When I heard about Max's accident I didn't know how or who to send condolences to but hopefully this will suffice. I remember Mike flying what I remember was a T-34 and seeing him around the airport. I have thought of Max and the Boomer often, Max even gave me a small artist drawing of Boomer that I still treasure. A really great guy, the world could use a lot more like him.

I was a 10 year old on the day. I was with my family in Windsor about to head into a Chinese restaurant for lunch. We stood out the front for a moment watching this aircraft high in the sky. After a while when we were seated inside we heard an almighty loud scream of an engine revving, then silence. Not knowing what the noise was we carried on only to find out that night back home on the news, the plane had crashed.

Ben, How accessible to the general public is the High Valley Ranch these days? Is it still used for conferences and seminars? I’ve been thinking about taking a trip up there and seeing it again. It’s been a long time since I was last there. I hear the Brassfield Winery next door is worth a visit also.

The top picture is with me on the wing. I meet Mr Huismann at Rockford in 1969 and cleaned his Mustang during the week of the EAA fly-in.
They asked for helpers in 1970 for Oshkosh and I submitted my name and he said I would be welcome to look after his plane again. I went
Down by myself in 1970 and was given a flight both years in the Mustang at the end of the week. I still remember the thrill and noise during the
Flight. Just great.

ralph peterson - Thank You!
I crewed on this Mustang for Bob Love in the years just after Jack Hovey had it painted as the Mustang MkIV.
Before that, when it was black, it was known as the "Jello Mold Special" but back then nobody could tell when the Jello molds were installed.

Steve Crosby had based the P-51 at Bellingham, wa. He had traded a Grumman Duck for the Mustang. Steve was the 3rd place winner of the 1964 Harold's Club Transcontinental Race in 1964. He felt that he did not have the experience needed to pylon race and stood down. as a side note the Grumman Duck ended up with Frank Tallman and Steve and Frank had a nice chat about the Duck and its movie history including being the star in "Murphy's War". Mr.Tallman had brought the B-25 "THE SMASHER" up to Bellingham in 1972 to film the mountains for the remake of "LOST HORIZONS". as a note, N35N was painted a sharp gloss black with red spinner and wing tips, pilots name and red tip of vertical stab. The a/c also had silver prop blades and white wall tires. the only speed mod for 1964 were the spiral jello molds to cover the gun ports.

It is the P-51 Gunfighter of the CAF. I was notified about this image thanks to Jerry Mason and I can recognize my grandfather in the background wearing the hat. He was actually the Wing Commander at Offutt at the time of the accident and assisted in providing a hangar to restore the Mustang. Great accomplishment for everyone involved at the time.
