"Red Baron" P-51 #5 Air Racer

Description:

The Red Baron is easily recognized as one of the most famous and visually striking of the Unlimited Air Racers, with a hard-core following of devotees, even many years later.

History:

1966: The aircraft first appears at the Reno Air Races as a relatively stock P-51. The owners at this time consist of Charles Willis, Frank Lynott, and pilot, Chuck Hall. The aircraft finishes sixth in a Consolation Race.
1967: Chuck Hall becomes the sole owner. The plane finishes fourth in the Gold Championship.

Chuck Hall becomes the sole owner. The plane finishes fourth in the Gold Championship.
1968: Modifications are made to the Mustang that include the shortening and smoothing of the wings, which helps to streamline the aircraft and improve its ability to negotiate the tight racing turns. In addition, a race prepared Rolls Royce Merlin engine replaces the stock unit. Painted green and silver, Chuck Hall gives the aircraft a name as well, Miss R.J. The improvements pay off, as Miss R.J. becomes the top Unlimited Qualifier. However, in the Gold Final, after an exciting dual for the lead with Darryl Greenamyer’s Bearcat, mechanical problems arise on the last lap and Miss R.J. finishes third.
