The Twin Mustang 44-86887 was purchased by Tom Reilly, a well known warbird restorer who was located in Kissimmee, FL, until 2005. He now has a restoration facility in Douglas, GA, with Don Brooks (P-38 Ice Cap Recovery). He and his crew are very heavy into the restoration of 86887 and expect to have it up on its gear within another 18 months. Both engines are being rebuilt by Nixon Vintage V12s. Both props (left hand and right hand) have been purchased. Tom has traveled the world purchasing every available P-82 part that still existed. He now has all of the parts to complete the restoration. One needs to take a trip to Douglas to see the quality of the work being accomplished.

The XP-82 project was sold to a very well known warbird restorer. I'l have to get his permission to release any of the pictures I have. Wait a couple of weeks and you can see some pics in Air Classics. Kevin Tanner was there to take pics the day she arrived.

The only XP-82 in existance is the one onwed by Walter Soplata in his incredible aviation junkyard.The condition of it is less than remarkable,all that remains is the right fusalage.Just recently though Walter sold it to a new owner.Who he is I don't know but if he plans to restore it will be a heck of a job.I mean just look at the C.A.F. it's been 20 years and they just found propeller plades!Well I hope it went to a good home.
