P-51 Mustang ‘Old Crow’ Restoration
Jack bought hist first P-51 Mustang in 1993 and spent the next 10 months refurbishing it to first class condition as Bud Anderson’s WW-II Mustang “Old Crow”. Jack’s passion for these the warbirds moved him to bring the “Old Crow” back out of the pages of history and into the skies again. Jack sold this P-51 “Old Crow” to Jim Hagedorn of Columbus Ohio. He now owns a P-51D “Gentleman Jim” and a new P-51 “Old Crow.” Below are some images of the original refurbishing project.
