P-51 Voodoo (Piston Power speed record holder)

The P-51 Voodoo that Steven Hinton, Jr. flew to break the C-1e speed record Sept. 2, 2017 at Challis, ID. I was actually watching his father Steve Hinton flying a P-51 Mustang at the Flying Heritage Collection show at Paine Field when the announcer broke the news that Steve-O had beaten the Piston Powered Aircraft record.

During my visit to Chino only a few months later, Steve Hinton Jr. was at work in one of the PoF restoration hangars but I did not take a photo… I wish I had.

Voodoo is of course a heavily modified adaptation of the P-51 Mustang WWII fighter plane.
