'Big Beautiful Doll' sadly involved mid-air collision with Skyraider F-AZDP during Flying Legends Balbo crash landed in nearby field. The pilot survived fortunately, the P-51D did not. This was to be the last time we would see this fabulous aeroplane.

Commonwealth Aircraft Corporation built Mustang with the Royal Australian Air Force as A68-187 from 1950 - 58. Several owners had Australian registrations reserved for the fighter, but none were applied. It was converted to Rolls-Royce Dart power and ground run, but not flown between 1971 - 77. The Merlin engine was re-installed and it was stored until exported to the USA as N919WJ for World Jet, Inc in 1995. The Warbird has been flying again as N50FS since conversion to a TF-51D using parts from P-51 44-74839 (cn 122-41379) in 1996.

This is not the original A68-769, which was a North American built P-51D. This is a Commonwealth Aircraft Corporation built CA-18 Mk 21 with serial A68-110 , delivered to the RAAF as such in 1948. It was restored to flying condition and converted to a P-51D-5-NT by North American in Dallas, Texas in 1999.

Crashed at Bendigo, Victoria, on February 15, 1970 during the opening of the new Bendigo airport. The pilot had been endorsed on the Mustang only two months before the crash and had amassed 25 hours on it. He was performing the second of two fast runs when he was asked to do a third. The pilot climbed steeply to 1500 feet and attempted a steep turn. The Mustang flicked into a roll and spun in killing him. Mike Madden photo.
