Not only is this a historical aircraft, but considering the Il2 Forums, its perfectly named. Spam Can' belonged to the Yellow Scorpion Squad. This one is from the 350th, if I'm not mistaken. Tokyo Rose was the first one who referred to them as "Yellow Scorpions' (because of the yellow tail), and they readilly adopted the name. They were the first US fighter squadron to fly P-51 against the Japanese in CBI. SpamCan still flies today. I used the P-51361stperfect template. Thanks BlitPig_Lizard, for the info and Photo's.

Airliners.net has a pic or two of the 'real' one, I beleive. The aircraft painted as "Spam can" is in all probability not the original aircraft that carried those markings in WWIIhttp://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif But still a very nice aircraft

I believe you may be correct. Several of my Squadmates, including Lizard recently saw this bird.
