North American P-51 Mustang

A truly legendary fighter aircraft - the North American P-51 Mustang

North American P-51 Mustang

The P-51 combined the best of both worlds from the American and British aero-industires: The Americans supplied the airframe; the British a Rolls-Royce Merlin engine. It proved to be a formidable combination and the Mustang went on to make a big impact on the course of the war by being able to escort bombers on on their missions into Europe.

The Mustang continued in service with various airforces after the war, and can still be seen flying today - in fact some Mustangs are almost as fast as ever as they continue to compete in air races in the States.
