North American P-51D Mustang NL7715C Wee Willy II, May 14, 2011 North American P-51D Mustang NL7715C Wee Willy II is owned by Steve Hinton and registered NL7715C. This Mustang was reconstructed in part from the wreckage of the Red Baron RB-51 racer, once the fastest piston powered aircraft in the world. Its original serial was 44-84961, but it carries 413334 on its tail. The Air Force disposed of it at McClellan Air Force Base, California in 1958. It was purchased by Capitol Airways of Nashville, Tennessee and registered as N7715C. In July 1964 it was acquired by Charles Willis Jr., Frank Lynitt, and Charles Hall of Seattle, Washington. They raced it as #5, first named Red Baron, then Miss RJ". Gunther Balz of Kalamazoo, Michigan bought it in July 1971 and changed its name to Roto-Finish, keeping race number 5. John Sliker of Wadley, Georgia picked it up in October 1973, but sold it to Ed Browning of Brownings Incorporated in Idaho Falls the following February. Brownings Inc. installed a Rolls Royce Griffon engine with contra-rotating propellers and called it the "Red Baron" RB-51. It first flew with the Griffon engine on March 6, 1975. It set the world's piston engined speed record of 499.018 miles per hour on August 14, 1979. It crashed with Steve Hinton at the controls at the Reno Air Races that September. Hinton survived the crash. Richard Ransofer of Grapevine, Texas acquired the wreckage in 1980. Steve Hinton and Fighter Rebuilders at Chino used portions of the "Red Baron" wreck and P-51D, 44-73053 to reconstruct "Wee Willy II". It first flew after reconstruction in September 1985. Some of the hulk of the RB-51 was acquired by Terry and Bill Rogers of Sherman, Texas in 1989 to be used in another Griffon powered race conversion, but Rogers' efforts were diverted into the rebuilding of Vendetta into Miss Ashley II

North American P-51D Mustang NL5441V Spam Can, May 14, 2011 North American P-51D Mustang NL5441V Spam Can has belonged to the Planes of Fame Air Museum since June 1957. It flew for the Army Air Force as 45-11582 and it still wears that number on its tail.
