I had the good fortune to be present at the first public viewing of the nearly restored P-51D "Marinell" The aircraft has recently been completely restored and has undertaken
engine runs and taxying trials within the last few days. It is just
awaiting paperwork before it takes to the air once more.
The aircraft is registered as G-MRLL , a North American P51D-5-NA. It
wears the markings of the 339th FG, 504th FS , as "413521", 5Q-B, and
is named "Marinell"
Even the sun played its part allowing the following images to be
taken (amongst several others !!)

I have never had any of my images accepted for Airlners .net - do you think these will be given the historical importance of the event ? . I have the orinals and several other views as well
