Description: Lt. Col. Everett W. Stewart helps a passenger strap into the 4th Fighter Group's first two-seater Mustang at Debden. This war-weary P-51B, converted by T.Sgt. Woody Jensen, carried all three squadron colors on the rudder and WD-2 on the side. It was a huge success with ground crew, not to mention girlfriends smuggled in by pilots who wanted to make the ultimate impression. This aircraft was also used for essential combat training.
