Probably the largest piece of a wartime 4th Fighter Group Mustang in existence. This propeller blade was dug up by the farmer on the right while clearing a stump on his land adjacent to the airfield.
Based on his research and where it was found, he believes it to be from P-51B 43-6656, a 334th FS Mustang that apparently stalled on landing after a local flight on 28 Feb 1944, with pilot 1Lt. Bob Fraser killed.
The 11’ 2” Hamilton-Standard 4-bladed propeller was made of solid aluminum with a rubber ‘cuff’ fitted near the hub. The difference between the two are obvious. Also note the severe twist at the bottom that broke off this blade! - 21 hours ago
