Rick, I grew up in the air force. My Dad was a career NCO. I developed a love of planes at an early age. Sadly never could get a pilot’s license. My inner ear is to sensitive to successfully recover from a stall.

Now those Corsairs and P-38’s are cool planes. But in my honest opinion they don’t stand a candle to a P-51D. Without a doubt the finest piston fighter of it’s era! I’d love to be able to fly one for just an hour.

Hey Bob:

I forgot what plane that was. Is it a Mustang?

Work with me here Bob ..lol..

OH WAIT BOB! I think I have a P-51 in my files. Hang on.

At first they wouldn’t download it so I resized it and changed the .jpg to .jpeg and it worked!

Now I remember it! YEP! You’re right! This is One HOT Aircraft! I’m also pretty sure that YouTube has a few videos on it.I’ll check later.

Yup, That’s it, a rare thing of Beauty. The early models weren’t as good as the later ones. They had, I believe an Allison engine and were underpowered. It really came into it’s own when the Rolls Royce Merlin engine was added and the bubble canopy. The early ones honestly looked a lot like a Spitfire to me. The drop tanks gave it the range to become the premier long range fighter escort for the bombing campaign into the heart of Germany.
My ultimate hot rod!
