Great Progress on the Biggin Hill Trust's P 51D Mustang

We have posted on the Biggin Hill Trust's P 51D Mustang back when it was registered ZK-BHT2 back on 10/8/23.  This of course is the ex John Smith machine NZ2423 that John rescued from the wrecker yard in the late 1950s.

And now we can see the great progress that has been made in the last couple of months.  The aircraft has had fuel in its tanks for the first time since the restoration and next week ground running is planned.

Congratulations to Brendon Deere and his team at the Biggin Hill Historic Aircraft Centre.  The Mustang looks amazing!


  1. Doesn't she look spectacular?!

    One minor correction - his name is spelled Brendon :-)

  2. Thanks Zac. I have altered it now.
