Pictorial with concise history of the North American P-51 Mustang.
The P-51 was an American long-range, single-seat fighter and fighter-bomber used during World War II and other conflicts.
From late 1943, P-51Bs (supplemented by P-51Ds from mid-1944) were used by the USAAF’s Eighth Air Force to escort bombers in raids over Germany, while the RAF’s 2 TAF and the USAAF’s Ninth Air Force used the Mustangs as fighter-bombers, roles in which the Mustang helped ensure Allied air superiority in 1944.
The P-51 was also in service with Allied air forces in the North African, Mediterranean and Italian theaters, and saw limited service against the Japanese in the Pacific War.
This issue features a wide range of images of the P-51, from the first prototype through the P-51D model and beyond, in USAAF, RAF and other nations' service in all theaters.
