44-64005  'MARY  MINE' - Charles Kemp - Jackson,Missipi
A real 361st FG veteran this mustang was delivered to the group in mid-1944 & was assigned to the 376th FS & became the aircraft of Lt. George R. Vanden Heuvel. He named it 'Mary Mine' and claimed 9 'kills'. After the war it passed through the RCAF & other private owners before Charles Kemp restored it to its former glory.   This photo shows George Vanden Heuvel 2nd from left, Charles Kemp 3rd from the left  and Don Vulgamure (a 376th FS,361st FG pilot) 4th from the  left.
