Default Restore LOU IV P-51 Mustang Project

In 2007 a P51 D Mustang called Lou IV was damaged in a landing accident a Camarilla, California. Become a fan to help us restore this majestic fighter!

Flying the P-51 D has been a lifelong dream for Terry Dieno, President of Fast Toys For Boys. Terry's love for aviation heated up when he acquired his pilot's license in 1973. This was the beginning of a lengthy career in commercial crop spraying, pipeline patrol, and aerobatics became a passion in the Yak and Pitts Special. LOU IV is one of the most photographed fighters of WWII because Major Thomas offered to fly for the picture taking press from a base in Italy.

The rebuilding of Lou IV is a task of huge magnitude and progressing slowly. The wings are now totally rebuilt, the new fuselage is a work in progress, and the tail cone and many smaller components are nearing completion.

You can easy follow the rebuild on Facebook @ http://www.facebook.com/restorelouiv or check out our website http://www.restorelouiv.com

Happy flying from the Restore LOU IV Team!
