    P-51 nose over in the US

    Been reported on WIX that P-51D Mustang ‘Rosalie’ nosed over on landing at Carson City yesterday (Sunday). No report on the welfare of the pilot or damage to the airframe.

    I believe the incident report states "prop strike" rather than nose over which may or may not mean the same thing. Hopefully it was a minor thing either way.

    Thanks Chad. Details did seem to be rather sketchy.

    OUCH !!! Looks like the short narrow runway syndrome as the windsock shows only a light crosswind. That would have been costly...........
