Spook, 44-72180, G4-H, flown by 357th FG Ace, John Kirla. This photo is a real jewel from some of Joe Black's negatives. Probably parked at hardstand #8 and blister hangar #69. This confirms that the blister hangar was used for tank storage. Picture probably taken after the war was over. This was John's 3rd and final Mustang, he ended the war with 11 1/2 confirmed victories.
