Digging through old photos I came up with a few planes that I never see anymore. Anyone have any ideas where thes planes are? The photo below is from Oshkosh 1991.

Here is one from 1993. Also what about the black Mustang that you get a glimpse of in the background. I remember this one was at EAA seemingly every year.

I remember this Bearcat crashed just after takeoff in 93. Has it been rebuilt?

Again 1993. This is one of the most beautiful airplanes I have ever seen. After 1993 though I have not seen it again.

Sadly we all know what happened to Miss Ashley II. This is from Oshkosh 1999. Please excuse the poor quality photo.

This might help you out a bit. Maybe someone can give more up to date and accurate info.

Black P-51 in background (maybe): http://www.p-51mustangs-aliveandwell.com/aircraft/p51/44-63889.shtml

Bearcat: "Gulfhawk IV" Owned by Elmer Ward, Crashed at Osh. I believe it was restored by Fighter Rebuilders at Chino.

F7F: Part of the Lone Star Flight Museum out of Galveston, TX. Website said it is still part of the museum.

P-51 Sierra Sue: http://www.p-51mustangs-aliveandwell.com/aircraft/p51/44-63675.shtml

That is the black Mustang that was in the background. I see it is right here in IL where yours truly resides.

That first mustang is Platinum Plus, which was owned by John Sandberg. That airplane now regularly flies, and is Sweet Revenge. Still polished, and show at EAA and such. Sierra Sue still flies, although, do not know how often. CFFUZ was the black mustang, and recently was bought by someone in I forget either Chicago or Detroit. Angel's Playmate still shows everyonce in a while.

We should be able to find more out about Cottonmouth; but it seems the well is a little dry.

New info on the Tigercat has emerged, and at this early date, it is lookin' good: Other Board (http://www.pylon1.com/htdocs/dcforum/DCForumID2/1190.html)

Sorry, on my original post I "forgot" the proper way to post a URL. Also sorry about linking to "another" site, but it is done with information in mind.

Take Care,
