We mounted Jean Ann II on her pole on Saturday April 12 at 1:00pm. It took about 45 min to complete the activity. The crew still has to add the canopy, the air scoop panels, do some touch-up, and paint the pole before she is finished. Bob Withee was able to watch the entire process.
Congratulations on successfully mounting the P-51 Mustang. Outstanding job – thank you to all the crew members involved!

Next Steps for the P-51 Mustang
Work will now begin on the rest of the monument. Limestone, stanchions, chain and a walkway made from pavers donated by the Belden Brick Company.
