SKYBLAZERS P-80 serial numbers and fates

Good evening to all members.

Am trying to determine the fates and serial numbers of the P-80 C Shooting Stars from the famous SKYBLAZERS Aerobatic Team.

I thought I would find the serial numbers easily on Joe Baugher's site, but got no joy there....

I managed to find different serial numbers and codes for the machines flown by the SKYBLAZERS, so I assume they must have changed some of their machines.

Can someone (possibly from the USA) who may have more DATA help me in finding the whereabouts/fates of those machines? I am particularly interested on the machine of serial number 53-663, coded FT-663.

FT-663 (53-663) Crew Chief Sgt. R. W. Camm and Pilot, Lt. C. A. Patillo.
FT-697 (58-697)
FT-626 (58-626)
FT-683 (58-683)>

However, this link ( do give us the following serials:

FT-644 (Captain Harry K Evans) - Leader
FT-663 (Cuthbert “Bill” Patillo) – right wingman
FT-697 (Lawrence “Dag” Damewood) - solo
FT-669 (Lt Charles “Buck” Patillo) – left wingman
