You know that:

  • When you feel like a task is impossible to accomplish, think of the designers at North American Aviation who, at the request of the RAF in 1940, developed a brand new aircraft in 120 days that became a true legend.
  • The first flight took place on 26 October 1940, 178 days after the order was placed.
  • Over time, the Mustang became one of the most successful Allied aircraft.
  • The original combat name of the machine was Apache and Invader, but eventually the designation "Mustang" became popular among pilots.
  • It was the Mustang pilots who brought a new tactic to protect the bombers. Behind it all was a violation of orders to stay close to the bombers. Instead, the pilots attacked the German fighters as they were forming up to attack. This new strategy definitely reversed the balance of air power over Europe.
  • When German Marshal Herman Göring saw Mustang fighters over Berlin one day, he told his aide, "We have lost the war.
  • Probably the most successful Mustang pilot was the American George Earl Preddy, who was unfortunately shot down by his own air defences.
  • Another aerial ace was William Arthur Shomo, nicknamed "The Gravedigger" after his civilian occupation, who shot down six enemy aircraft in one day.
  • The P-51 is the fastest piston-engined fighter ever, with a top speed of 885 km/h.
  • A total of 15,875 were produced in various versions.

  • Thanks to its durable construction, there are still many airworthy machines around the world today.
