Photo shows 10 victory markings, though it's believed the pilot was not an ace. Flown by Lt. Robert E. Hulderman but also associated with Lt. Lee Mendenhall. Aircraft believed lost on 11 Sept 44 - Capt Kevin G Rafferty KIA shot down by flak near Marburg, Germany. Ace Frederick Haviland also flew it sometimes and scored several of his nine aerial and six ground victories in it.)
  A P-51D of the 332nd FG were called the "Red-tailed Angels" by bomber crews as the unit had a superb escort record. Unlike most other pilots, the Tuskegee airmen would not leave their bombers unprotected to chase enemy fighters. This is a rare colour photograph of a Tuskegee Mustang.
