Thom Richard updates progress being made to rebuild his one-of-a-kind P-51 Mustang, Precious Metal, the world's only Rolls Royce Griffon-powered P-51.

On April 2, 2016, the major disassembly work began at the team's home base at Warbird Adventures and the Kissimmee Air Museum in Kissimmee, Fla. A long road lies ahead for Thom & Co to get Precious back into competition at the annual Reno National Championship Air Races, here is the first of a series of periodic update videos to be released as progress is made to get Precious back in the air.

ATA's Jeff Lee originally reported the devasting fire in Septermber, which quickly engulfed the spectacular Reno Racer, Precious Metal. See the dramatic photos here.
