F-82B Twin Mustang
US Air Force Museum
Dayton, OH


P-82

F-82B Twin Mustang in the restoration hangar at the old CAF HQ in Harlingen, Texas. This Twin Mustang was retired at Lackland AFB in San Antonio, Texas, where it was mounted on a pylon as a gate guard. The CAF obtained title to the aircraft. They subsequently restored it to flying condition. This Twin Mustang was featured in the annual CAF airshow in the early 80's. It suffered a gear-up landing in one of the airshows. The airframe itself was only lightly damaged, but the nearly irreplaceable propellers were damaged beyond use. The Twin Mustang was repaired and repainted in the early 90's, but the CAF could not locate a set of propellers. As a result, the Twin Mustang has sat on the ground since that time. She was recently moved to California, where she is undergoing a full restoration, with plans to bring her back to flying condition. The CAF and the USAF Museum are involved in litigation to sort out the ownership of the aircraft. In March of 2009, the aircraft was disassembled and moved to Dayton, where it was stored in the restoration hangar waiting to be restored for a future static display.
