A personal project. The P51 Mustang is my favorite airplane and I figured why not combine two passions in one project!
“The day I saw Mustangs over Berlin, I knew the jig was up.”
– Hermann Goering, German Luftwaffe commander, WWII
The P-51 Mustang is generally considered the best fighter plane of WWII. It was the first plane with the range, maneuverability and reliability necessary to accompany bombers on long-range missions from England to Germany, and was thus a critical component of eventual Allied victory in Europe. Over 15,000 planes were produced, and less than 300 survive today, of which only about 150 are flying.
