Jumpin Jacques

John Hooton

Croydon, United Kingdom

Artist's Description

American P51 Mustang at the 2008 Biggin Hill Air Show. This actual aircraft originally belonged to the 332nd fighter group and bears several battle scars by way of repaired bullet holes in the fuselage. This group became famous as the first all Afro American fighter group – the Tuskegee Airmen, Tuskegee being the town where they trained in Macon County, Alabama.
One of their main roles was escorting and protecting B-17 bombers, the ‘flying fortresses’. The present owner, Jacques Bourret, adopted this new colour scheme after discovering a photo of a P51 aircraft in this ‘Jumpin Jacques’ livery.
