A P-51 Mustang (YF-L, serial number 44-73155) nicknamed "Ole VI" of the 357th Fighter Squadron, 355th Fighter Group flown by Major William J "Billy" Hovde. Handwritten caption on reverse: 'Hovde's A/C. Richard Williams.'

There is a major problem in associating Maj. Hovde's series of "Ole" named P-51s as two different aircraft appear to have been named Ole VI. More illustrations to be added later.
Corrected serial number in caption from 44-73155 to 44-73165.
