North American P-51 Mustang (N551MB)


"Goldfinger" (Unlimited Class - "Race 2"), Mike Brown's glisteningly gorgeous gold and polished silver North American F-51D Mustang (N551MB), glows as it reflects the early dawn light while parked in the pits of the 2018 National Championship Air Races.

To view this fabulous aircraft in best quality, I recommend clicking on FULL.
(Additional Note: "Goldfinger" was formerly named "Risky Business.")

According to this year's NCAR program, Dan Vance was listed as an alternate pilot of "Goldfinger" - Race 2. However, Dan would not have flown Race 2 .... because he was busy winning the silver medal in the Unlimited Class races in the cockpit of "Speedball Alice" (Race 31).
