Miss Dallas

Assigned to Capt Victor J France Capt France hailed from Dallas, Texas, and scored more than eight victories in this and a later aircraft before being killed on 18th April 1944. Don Allen repainted an almost identical image onto a P-51B Mustang when the 4th Fighter Group re-equipped. Its nose art was only recently completed when this Mustang (43-6832) was lost with Capt France when he chased an Me109 at low level near Stendal, struck the ground and exploded.
