Saving the Wild Mustangs - the Story Behind the Vintage Wings Mustang > Vintage Wings of Canada

Recently, however, we were contacted by Jerry Vernon, President of the Vancouver Chapter of the Canadian Aviation Historical Society. Vernon informed Vintage Wings that he had been researching and keeping records on all of the 130 postwar RCAF Mustangs for over 30 years.
...
From the research conducted by Jerry and Mike Henniger of Vintage Wings on the USAF record card acquired with the Vintage Wings Mustang, it was determined that it had spent a short time in storage at the North American factory at Inglewood, CA, until the USAF was ready to take delivery.
...
This section provides a complete history of Mustang s/n 9575 as researched by Jerry Vernon from the time it was loaded onto the trailer at the former BCATP training field at Carberry, Manitoba to the present time.
...
For example, Jerry has several photos of former Hamilton Auxiliary squadron Mustangs in storage at the Syracuse NY airport, still in the remnants of their RCAF markings but with no known or visible US registrations.
...
In the case of s/n 9575, Vernon believes that it was stored uncovered at RCAF Station Carberry, Manitoba from 1954 to 1961, when ownership passed to Aero Enterprises of Elkhart, IN, USA. His theory is based on the RCAF inventory card which recorded it stored Reserve (03 Sep 54), Ready Reserve(20 Apr 56) and APDAL (19 Jul 56). All of the Mustangs stored at Carberry, Fort Macleod and Calgary simply show "Lincoln Park" on the RCAF cards. He has no reason to think that it would have been stored anywhere else other than Calgary and then moved later to Carberry, which was a sub-unit of No. 10 Repair Depot, Lincoln Park, Calgary.

From the extensive research of Jerry Vernon on RAF Mustang record cards from WW II, they revealed that 442 (F) Sqn. operated 21 Mk. IV Mustangs (both P-51D and P-51K models) in the UK in the period from March 1945, until August when the squadron was stood down. Several of these aircraft were destroyed either in operations over Germany in April 1945 or in post-war flying in the UK before stand-down.
