Stallion 51 Corporation's N.A. TF-51D Mustang "Crazy Horse"



Stallion 51 Corporation located in Kissimmee, Florida, is a FAA certified organization that conducts various flight operations in the P-51 Mustang, which owns and operates this beautiful North American TF-51D Mustang “Crazy Horse” (S/N 44-84745) and has trained more pilots to fly the P-51 Mustang than any other and is also available for orientation flights, and air shows.

Acquired by Stallion 51 Corporation in April of 1987, "Crazy Horse" was built in 1944 as a P-51D and later converted to North American standards as a dual cockpit / dual controlled TF-51 Mustang.

Crazy Horse wears the authentic colors of the 48th Fighter Squadron, 352nd Fighter Group; 8th Air Force, which was based at Asch, Belgium, 1945 and is one of an estimated sixteen dual controlled Mustangs existing in the world.

The P-51 Mustang is universally regarded as the best fighter to emerge from WWII. Talk to Legends such as Bob Hoover, Bud Anderson, or many other military test pilots, and they will tell you the airplane was nothing less than a stroke of genius when it was introduced in 1942. Even though there were over 15,000 Mustangs built, there are only approximately 165 flying throughout the world today.

The TF-51 and P-51D may look similar, but, in fact, the TF version incorporates a number of upgrades and improvements to adapt to the original single-seat Mustang to the dual-control / dual-cockpit aircraft. One of the primary mods involves removing the standard 85-gallon auxiliary fuel tank aft of the pilots seat and installing a second seat in the rear. This left the aircraft with 180 gallons in the wings; plenty of fuel for flight of two hours or less. With the extruded bubble canopy, visibility is incredible and headroom is usually not an issue for most
customers.

The minimum aft control installation demands stick, rudder pedals, throttle, prop and mixture, not to mention a full set of flight and engine instruments to monitor manifold pressure, rpm, oil pressure, oil temperature and cylinder head temperature. Plumb all of that to the engine and appropriate controls and you essentially have a dual-control / dual-cockpit TF-51 Mustang.
