Mustangs in the mud

In the winter 1942-43 the Canadian military set up Mustang equipped squadrons at newly constructed Dunfold airfield in Surrey BC. Accomodations were sparse at the grass field, blister hangers provided a bit of protection from rain, while in order to get out of the mud, the aircraft were parked 3 at a time on concrete pads. I can't imagine there was much flying done till the ground dried in early summer.
