P-51D PH-JAT “Trusty Rusty”

Posted by on July 16, 2016

FastAero got contracted to carry out further testflights on P-51D PH-JAT “Trusty Rusty” out of Lelystad. The first testflights dated back to early 2012, at which time a problem with the propeller’s constant speed unit arised. It took Stichting Vroege Vogels a while to find another Aeroproducts propeller, but on last July 4th “Trusty Rusty” took the air again. Pilot assigned for the mission was FastAero’s CFI Marcel Peerlkamp. Two succesfull testflights were conducted with some minor issues to be addressed. Next flights are planned within the next few days.
