Bill Overstreet - P-51 Pilot - RIP

Recommended Posts

Bill Overstreet, the pilot of the P-51, The Berlin Express, has died. He died on Sunday in Roanoke, Virginia. He was a very interesting man, and I will miss him and his stories.

May he rest in peace. :salute:

Being born and raised in Paris I've often wondered what it'd be like to see a Mustang fly under the Eiffel tower.

What scale, Mike, and where did you find decals?

Don

Hi Don,

1:48 scale, using the Tamiya kit; decals are on Aeromaster 48-288 "Mustangs Forever Pt III"

Overstreet was one of Yeager's wingmen at one point wasnt he?

R.I.P. Sir.

Possible, of course, but not mentioned here. http://www.cebudanderson.com/overstreet.htm

He does say on that page: " I flew with several [other flight leaders] until I flew as “Tail End Charlie’ with Anderson. From then on, I tried to fly with him whenever possible. I thought then (and still do) that he was the greatest. His record sure proves it."

@ Don (post above) - you're welcome.
