Details

The North American P-51 Mustang is one of the classic aircraft of all time. This paper model builds an early mark of P-51 flown in Europe during World War II by a U.S. Army Air Ace!


Powered by an American Packard-built Rolls-Royce Merlin engine, the P-51 proved to be outstandingly fast and maneuverable, with long range extended by the use of drop tanks. The aircraft also excelled as a fighter-bomber. Escorting B-17s and B-24s on raids deep into the German heartland, the P-51 proved it could best everything the Luftwaffe threw against it, even scoring victories against the speedy new Me-262 jet. It was equally effective in the Pacific, was one of the most feared Allied fighters where ever it was encountered, and was flown operationally by pilots from at least eight Allied countries. Post-war, it served into the 1960s with some 55 air forces worldwide.

 

Major John R. Bennett flew an unnamed P-51B Mustang while with the 487th Fighter Squadron, 352nd Fighter Group, 8th AF- the Blue-Nosed Bastards of Bodney. P-51B, serial number 43-6506, with the squadron code HO-Y, was one of a limited number of Blue-Nose Mustangs with an Olive Drab finish, and the only Blue-Nose Mustang to sport a shark-mouthed paint scheme.
