Red Dog P-51 D Mustang 44-74469

 
 

P-51 Red Dog was brought to Midwest Aero in 2002 for a full restoration by Classic American Aircraft based in Ohio.  Red Dog was given the normal treatment for restoration by Midwest Aero however the owner wanted to have a perfectly smooth wing with high gloss finish to go along with the high polish of the aluminum and the high gloss red paint on the nose.  Much work was accomplished to block sand the wing for a perfect finish.  Red Dog is quite striking with the high polish and glossy red nose.  Red Dog was unveiled at Oshkosh Airventure 2006 where it won Reserve Grand Champion and Midwest Aero’s Sixth Snap on Tools Corporation Golden Wrench Award.  Red Dog now lives in Chandler AZ with owner Ron Pratt.
