Captain Peter T. Keillor, 84th Fighter Squadron, stands by the 82nd Fighter Squadron P-51B, s/n "ww 2108826"( the "ww" was applied to aircraft determined unsuitable for combat either due to extensive flight hours or wear. They were retained for either training or other non-combat duties). This aircraft was painted overall insignia red after VE Day, benchmarking the time that the photo was taken. This P-51B was also converted to a "two-seater". ( Source Credit: Peter T. Keillor collection )
