Description: The late evening sunshine bounces of the nose of Maj. Pearce McKennan's famous P51D 'Ridge Runner', Ser# 44-63166 desig'n 'WD-A'. The Maj. called all his P51's 'Ridge Runner' so it is only the extented snout of the pink hog, the later exhaust manifold, and (oh yes!) the tiny roman numeral 'IV' just visable above the name that says this was the 4th and last P51D to be given the name and artwork. **
