Capt. Clarence E. “Bud” Anderson served two combat tours with the 363rd FS/357th FG during World War II. The 357th FG was stationed at RAF Leiston, England and Anderson flew a P-51D Mustang, s/n 44-14450, adorned with his familiar “Old Crow” nickname. He flew 44-14450 on 66 combat missions and added 11 ¼ aerial victories to his total. Capt. Anderson never had to abort a mission and his aircraft never suffered a hit from enemy fire. He returned to the United States in February of 1945 as a Major. When Anderson retired from the USAF as a Colonel in 1972 he had been decorated 25 times and served in World War II, the Korean War, Vietnam War, was a test pilot and held various other positions during his career.

The North American Aviation P-51 Mustang was a single-seat World War II fighter aircraft. First flown on October 26, 1940, the P-51 was designed and built in just 117 days.

As well as being economical to produce, the P-51 was a fast and durable aircraft.
