    Default Final fate of No.239 Squadron Mustang (AG-524 HB-B)

    Does anyone know what happened to No.239 Squadron Mustang (AG-524 HB-B)
    It was hit by flak and forced landed in a field near Wissenkerke on 14th Aug 1942
    Pilot Raymond Aubrey Pullin was sent to Stalag Luft III and it was thought that his Mustang was displayed at Nanterre Paris
    Did it remain in Paris after the war?
    Cheers

    G'day motherbird

    The aircraft indeed wart part of the Luftwaffe's Sample Collection at Paris-Nanterre. It carried the individual call letter 'B' when it went missing over Bruges.

    Thank you.
    I am assuming that it was scrapped later as there were other more pristine Mustangs that could be displayed.
