Re: F-51H crash 6 Jan 49 Derry NH. Serial?

From Tom Hildreth page on the 82nd FG history at Grenier:

Jan 1949

97th FS Summary- Maj. Shivers foot to be in cast for six weeks due to skiing injury. 2Lt. Brent Scowcroft was in hospital following aircraft accident, details of which were not listed in the history. Five engine changes were completed due to cracked blocks, leaking transfer seals, engine roughness due to reconditioned spark plugs (a recurring problem), and low oil temperature with oil scoop completely closed.
