That's a very good question. I'd check and see what squadrons had a black and yellow design, see which of those squadrons list as pilot as MIA over Chichi Jima, check for any serial number on the aircraft, see if you can find a MACR.

No luck on black and yellow checker. Iwo Jima-based P-51 squadrons began operations in March 1945. Here are some squadrons (462nd w/ yellow marking on aft), (47th squadron w/ black and yellow triangle on tail), 78th fighter squadron w/ yellow and black stripe on tail).
