P-51D Mustang Louisiana Kid

Our new horse

...called "Louisiana Kid". Don Weber has been flying the P-51D Mustang for 40 years in Louisiana, US until Wilhelm Heinz bought it in late 2012.

In January 2013 a little team travelled to the US to disassemble the Mustang and to prepare it for sea tranportation to Germany.

On 26th Feb 2013 the container doors opened again and for the first time "Louisiana Kid" could see its new Homebase, the Degerfeld. During the next couple of weeks the Mustang has been reassembeled and on 1st May 2013 it took off for the first time from Degerfeld!

 

By now "Louisiana Kid" had 167 successful flights, and took part in several Airshows, eg. Hahnweide OTT 2013 and Klassikwelt Bodensee 2014. (latest update Dec 2015)
