Okay some help for an old man. I grew up in south Texas when the CAF was first founded. Spent free time trading labor for rides. Was there for all the early airplanes. There was definitely a twin mustang. I don't remember if it was flying or static. Is this the same plane?

I saw one at Davis-Monthan AFB in Arizona (the boneyard) in 1967. It appears that the pilot flew from the left side cockpit.

There was a Twin Mustang on static display at Lackland AFB when I was at Basic Trng in Aug-Sept '71.

44-65162 – Displayed at the National Museum of the United States Air Force at Wright-Patterson AFB in Dayton, Ohio.[20] It had been a "gate guard" for many years outside Lackland AFB in Texas, was acquired by the Commemorative Air Force in 1966 and was operated for many years by its Midland, Texas squadron. However, it stalled while landing at Valley International Airport in Harlingen, Texas in 1987. The aircraft was restorable but its unique props and landing gear were destroyed in the crash and replacement parts could not be obtained. In 2002, the CAF included it with a crashed P-38 in a trade for a flyable P-38 from a private organization, NPA Holdings. The USAF stepped in and demanded the F-82 be returned since it was only loaned to the CAF on the condition that the CAF return the aircraft to the U.S. Air Force if it was no longer wanted. In a published opinion, the U.S. Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in December 2009 that the F-82B must be returned to the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force from NPA Holdings because the CAF violated the terms of the loan agreement with the U.S. Air Force.[21] This aircraft arrived at the National Museum of the United States Air Force in late 2009 and underwent an extensive restoration throughout 2010, modifying the aircraft to the appearance of an F-82G. In early 2011, the aircraft was placed on display in the museum's Korean War Gallery, modified and marked as the F-82G crewed by 1st Lt Charles Moran, pilot, and 1st Lt Fred Larkins, radar observer, 68th F(AW)S, when they shot down a North Korean La-7 on 27 June 1950, near Kimpo Air Base, South Korea. The aircraft is displayed without the F-82G's radar "long dong" pod, as none have been located.
