    Now, I may be barking up the wrong tree here, but I am sure I read somewhere (and saw a picture) of Neil Armstrong's P-51. Actually it could have been in the Astronaut's Hall of Fame in Florida where there is a small model showing his P-51 with nose-art and markings.

    I am sure he never used one in combat, just for training, but I think he flew one privately for recreation.

    If this is correct, are there any pictures that show it's markings?

    Cheers, MP.

    Found these links. These are two different planes (127 and 148). Not too sure about which one(s) he may have flown while at NASA, but it probably would have looked very similar.
