Aircraft: P-51 Mustang 'Berlin Express', 363rd FS, 357th FG, 8th AF, WWII Europe

Pilot: 1st Lt. Bill Overstreet

"Berlin Express" (B6-O) P-51C-1-NA s/n 42-103309 flown by Lt. Bill Overstreet of the 363rd FS, 357th FG, 8th AF. Overstreet was a hot pilot and was considered one of the better flyers in the 357th. He was known for some rather exciting experiences during his flying career during WWII in Europe.

-He, along with a couple other pilots did loops in formation around the Golden Gate Bridge.
-Flew unconscious over Europe for 90 minutes after his oxygen system got holed by flak, regaining consciousness at treetop level.
-While suffering a sinus infection had his eyes swell shut over Berlin and had to be led back to England.
-Flew UNDER the Eiffel Tower while chasing an Me-109, which he shot down. He had to fly at full throttle and low altitude over the river to escape AA fire over the city.

This plane was condemned for salvage/no battle damage on July 12,1944.

 

There us a signed plaque under the wing of the plane with serial number 437/1000. This is a sweet model and in perfect condition.

 

Model was removed from packing only to facilitate photographing; if the item is attached to the box, it has not been removed from the box.
