This North American P-51 D Mustang has quite a history. Known as “Lil’ Margaret,” it was the aircraft assigned to 9th Air Force pilot and Mustang Ace Clyde B. East. It’s the photo reconnaissance version of the Mustang, long admired as one of the most beautiful aircraft.
Restoring it was a passion for Henry “Butch” Schroeder who did it all by the book.
The result was the 1993 WWII Grand Champion at Oshkosh.
