Rare Dual Seat P-51 Mustang Crashes in Colorado

Little is known about the crash killing both pilot and instructor of a Durango, CO based vintage warbird. The Mustang reportedly went down shortly after takeoff just beyond the airport fenced boundary.

The pilot and aircraft were recently featured in the local press where the owner told reporters he was building time to meet insurance requirements to feature the rare P-51D in upcoming air shows.


You may remember a similar crash of a dual seat Mustang, Galveston Gal, that crashed in Oct. 2013 while giving a vintage warbird experience flight.
