Over the years “Jumpin Jacques” has appeared at many air shows throughout Europe, and was seen at Duxford’s Flying Legends air show on more than one occasion. With her gleaming polished exterior, “Jumpin Jacques” has become a favourite, much to the delight of all enthusiasts of this true thoroughbred. The fact that she has never had a major rebuild and is almost totally original as built in 1944 makes this a rare and special P-51 Mustang. She still carries evidence of her battle scars with repairs just behind the pilot’s position on both sides of the fuselage, and puncture repairs to the fin.
As an original “Tuskegee” fighter, the Hangar 11 Collection Mustang is a rare thoroughbred and much welcomed on the UK and European Air show scene.
