Donate $150 to the P-51 Red Nose, and you'll get a piece of history

(Peachtree City, GA, December 19, 2018) - Have you been looking for a unique holiday gift for that hard to shop for person on your list? Or, are you interested in owning a piece of history for yourself? We have just the thing. How about a piece of the famed WWII P-51 Mustang named Red Nose?

For a limited time as part of the Commemorative Air Force (CAF) annual 12 Planes of Christmas fundraising campaign, and for a donation of $150 or more, an approximate 2 inch square piece of wing skin could be yours. This is a limited time offer and is available only to the first 225 donors.

How’s that possible?

When the Dixie Wing took responsibility for the aircraft back in 2001 and brought it to Georgia, a small part of the outer wing had to be “reskinned” due to corrosion. That original wing skin has been in storage - until now.

This is a limited time offer that will expire when either the skins are all spoken for or the fundraising campaign ends on Dec 31st at midnight. Your donation will help the Dixie Wing install an engine monitoring system and Oxygen system, and also help to keep the aircraft flying for years to come.
Donate now to help support the aircraft that was the first aircraft of the Commemorative Air Force and be one of the few to own a piece of the famed Red Nose. Remember, this offer for a piece of skin only applies to the firs 225 donors. There are 3 ways to donate:
