Sadly, Robert Converse, an old friend although I'd lost contact with him for about 10 years prior to his passing, did leave us several years ago, I think 2013.
Robert and I flew together at Apollo Airways/Pacific Coast Airlines out of Santa Barbara back in the early 1980's. Robert went on to PSA/USAirways and I went on to Continental, retiring as a 767 Captain in 2009.
I last saw him at Oshkosh in the mid 1990's. He had the Huntress III there with his "Flying Fortress" set up selling rides and T-shirts/memorabilia.
Robert was a great guy.

N651D was owned by Johnny Bolton of Maitand, Fl. He named the plane “Hi Honey”. When he purchased N651D, it was painted in civilian colors of white, orange and black. Bolton repainted it in military Colors (Silver with red candy stripes on tail and yellow and red itrim on wing tips and nose. JBB was the ID on the fuselage. I had the privilege of riding in this Mustang on several occasions. Norm kept the bird spotless. Tragically Johnny and Norm perished in a crash on the way back from Texas to Florida along with Don Plumb in his P-51. The photo below is not N651D. Johnny Bolton previously owned a P-38 (N3JB) and T-6 prior to the P-51 N651D.
