    I used to have some pics of a P-51 crashing into something on an airfield and flipping over, I think it was in a magazine but I can't find it anywhere.

    It was a sequence of 3 pics showing the intial impact, cartwheeling crash. They might have been stills taken from a film.

    Does anyone know where I could find them?

    Thanks

    That's from an air race, Reno early 1960s?

    Cool pics, but not the ones I was looking for. It was a USAAF P-51, there were hangers and aircraft in the background, looked like Europe/Med.
    Thanks anyway.... :D

    Is this the incident at Bad Abling a few days after end of hostilities when an F-6D clipped the wing of a 109 wreck on landing? If so I have at least one shot... will scan later...

    Yeah, that sounds about right, I seem to recall it hit a wreck or something.
    Thanks
