Trent Latshaw’s beautiful North American P-51D Mustang, the “Millie G”, was briefly on display at the Cavanaugh Flight Museum in Addison, Texas when I visited in February of 2014. This aircraft is a replica of the original Millie G* (44-72123) flown by Maj. Edward Giller.
The original pilot, Maj. Edward Giller, named the plane after his wife Mildred. Giller was based in England and flew missions over Europe during World War II. As commander of the 343rd Fighter Squadron in the 55th Fighter Group Giller flew 115 combat missions, shooting down three German planes in the process, one of which was a jet.
Millie G is currently owned by pilot and Oil Man Trent Latshaw. Latshaw continues to fly Millie G while on business as well as to various aviation events around the country.
NAA Type – P-51D-10NA
Serial # – 44-14985

My thanks to Mr. Trent Latshaw and other War Bird owners and operators for keeping this part of our living history alive.
* Maj. Giller flew eight fighters during the war. Four P-38’s and four p-51’s, each flew under the name “Millie G”.
