After suffering damage as a result of a gear up landing in 1998, and discovering structural corrosion, it was going to be a slow recovery for P-51D Mustang s/n 44-73990. Many wondered if it would ever fly again, but Mark and Alan Henley always knew it would grace the skies once more. Seventeen years later, it did just that. This is the story of their journey, the passing of the torch to the next generation, and the World War II pilot it honors as the “new” ALABAMA RAMMER JAMMER.
