North American P-51D-25NA Mustang "SCAT VII" (PH-VDF / 472922) from the Vintage Dream Factory
at the KeeBee Spottersday 2017, Kleine-Brogel (Belgium)

The Mustang is probably the most recognized fighter of World War II. Its speed and range made it the ideal bomber escort.
This Mustang was built in 1944. It served with the 434th Fighter Squadron, 479th Fighter Group as "SCAT VII" L2-W. It was the personal plane of Major Robin Olds, a triple ace who scored his 4 last kills in this particular machine. It is one of those rare P-51 Mustangs who survived WWII and is now still flying in the same colour scheme it had over 70 years ago. Vintage Dream Factory is a Belgian non-profit organization, established to preserve the Mustang P-51 "SCAT VII" and operate out of their homebase in Antwerp, Belgium.
