May I fly my P-51K to complete this mission? It's the only P-51 I have ever owned.

Your post is too similar to mine, and you stole my logo with leaves on it. I ask that you remove yourself from this event.

Maybe its an American P-51K Mustang...

 

The P-51K Mustang

The P-51K Mustang was essentially a P-51D with a different propeller...

 

Essentially the same plane built in Dallas but sent to China

Well, you having absolutely no authority over me, of course means that I should leave because you said so.  This is confirmed by your post being right after mine.

Sorry for the mis communication. No the P-51K in not US. But it IS a P-51. So it can count for the bonus i mentioned.

What happens if you use a larger image? Disqualification?
