P-51C Mustang “Tuskegee Airmen” damaged in wheels-up landing


The P-51C Mustang “Tuskegee Airmen” of the Commemorative Air Force’s Red Tail Squadron was damaged in a wheels-up landing yesterday in Dallas. Pilot and Unit Leader Bill Shepard walked away from the accident unhurt.

The restaured aircraft made its first flight in 2001 and was used to honour the memory of the Tuskegee airmen. In May 2004, it crashed in Minnesota, pilot Don Hinz dying from his wounds a few days later. It was rebuilt in only five years and flew again in July 2009.
