More on the airplane.
If you look closely at the tail of the first airplane you will see a serial number. The code number was 44- 74717. I looked for the number as if it was done during the war but came to realize that this was a post war serial number. The plane was a p-51d-30-na. Several planes with nearby numbers served in the korean war and were damaged. Some survived into the modern era and became civilian aircraft. Aircraft were identified by their tail number and their records are tagged to them.
