Well Sqn. Ldr. R Wilson was wounded when flying A77-15, however, the aircraft was again damaged when being flown by Sgt. P Zupp on 6 Feb. 1952. It was finally lost on 27 Jun 1953 apparently, when being flown by F.O. F H G Booth (KIA). So unlikely to have flown with the damage 'illustrated'.
Workmate flew both the P-51 and Meteor in Korea, story is nonsense says he. Aircrafts history,
Served in Korea with 77 Sqn.
