The P51 Mustang photo shows one of the most effective planes of World War Two. The P51 Mustang gave the bombers of US 8th Air Force the fighter cover it so desperately needed over occupied Europe and, therefore, greatly assisted the bombing campaign against Nazi Germany in World War Two. The ware plane photo shows the P51 B that was first used in December 1943 and in May 1944, the P51-D was introduced. This plane was fitted with fuel drop tanks that gave it far greater mileage in the air. As well as escorting bombers, the Mustang attacked the Luftwaffe on the ground, destroying many aircraft. Captured in a military plane photo, as World War Two neared its end, many German fighter planes remained on the ground due to lack of spare parts and fuel. They were an inviting target for Mustang pilots. The P51 Mustang had an astonishing success rate. The P51 vintage aircraft photo shows a plane whose ratio for kills to losses was said to have been 19 kills for every 1 Mustang lost. The P51 Mustang is credited with the destruction of 4,950 German planes "“ more than any other Allied fighter "“ and some of these kills included the jet powered Me 262. Shown in P51 war plane photos, the success of the Mustang, that the Senate War Investigating Committee set up by Harry Truman in 1944, called it "the most aerodynamically perfect pursuit plane in existence." Matted and framed in wood under glass with a small piece of P-51 metal "skin" from a restoration project.. Certificate of authenticity included.
