If you mean that in the modern sense, TFC sold her following a lengthy restoration (first flight 1997) and a comprehensive rebuild at Chino from 1997/8-2005. 'Liz then went to the USA for the Gathering of Mustangs and Legends and stayed there. Last I heard, she'd been sold, possibly to Tom Friedkin or Jim Beasley?

Apologies if there are any errors in the above post, I'm going on memory alone!

What's with the masts behind the cockpit canopies of Jumpin' Jacques, Janie and Marinell? Looks like fake ones made of wood unpainted?

And you forgot the one on Janie as well (all from the same source oddly enough...) We have an original wooden one in the stores too...

Priness Elizabeth had been sold to Jim Beasley a year or so before the Gathering, he has since sold it on to Dan Freidkin. 'Twighlight Tear' was the aircraft that went across for the Gathering and has been under rebuild at Chino since then.

I didn't forget Janie. So the original wartime masts were made of wood?

Susy became Darlin Ann and was then sold to a German owner in 2007.
And then on to a Swiss owner in 2009 (but staying in Germany) - currently in bare metal awaiting a new name.

Ah thank you. She is a lovely aircraft, shame I never got to see her.

Please tells me you have more of the Memphis Belle filming... :drool:

Iceman - where was that BBD/Janie/JJ pic taken? I don't recognise the airfield. Backdrop looks slightly akin to Old Warden, but it clearly isn't.

Notwithstanding the dozen or so I've just posted, this is the one I was really looking for. Seen at Lakenheath Open House in 1986 this, apparently, became Big Beautiful Doll. If anyone knows otherwise, I'd be pleased to know. Seen here in the markings of No3 Sqn RAAF.

Very nice shot, yes you are correct it is the former OFMC Mustang now with Rob Davies as BBD.
