BUD ANDERSON'S "OLD CROW"
P-51D-10-NA #44-14450 was flown by Captain Clarence E.
"Bud" Anderson Jr. during his second combat tour with the 357th
Fighter Group, 363rd Fighter Squadron. This aircraft, called "Old
Crow", was based in Leiston, United Kingdom. It was painted Dark
Olive Green and Medium Grey, but was later stripped to bare metal. The
tires had been painted white to look like "whitewall" tires
by Old Crow's mechanics, and the invasion stripes were curiously incomplete,
lacking the forward white stripe.
