New Smyrna Beach – Collings P-51B/C and “Tondelayo”

These are the remaining shots of the Collings’ birds that flew in for their “tune-up”. Don’t know why there are so few shots of Tondelayo – and the P-51 was pretty much torn down by the time I got to it (good pics for you detailers, but no so good of the aircraft itself). They’ll be back in a few months and I’ll hopefully be able to get some better shots.

20 additional images. Click to enlarge.

  1. Nice pictures..
    Tondelayo will be my second B-25 in 1/48 scale.
    By the way I need wartime pictures of this Mitchell (B-25C or D), If I m not mistaken the glass nose were painted to the fuselage color.

  2. ahh headly lamarr…when i flew in this they offered to let me crawl up into the nose…but the tunnel was about 12″ x 12″…i gratefully declined…i stood behind the pilots as they made a tree top run down a river…wish that nose had been a little more accessable

  3. the mustang ride was 2 g’s…a lot better than crazy horse but too rich for my blood
