P-51D Mustang

 

The Mustang is perhaps one of the most famous fighters of all time, produced by the North American Aviation company, to fulfil a RAF retirement in WWII. This particular example (44-72035) flew in the United States Army Air Force and was assigned to the 332nd Fighter Group. The 332nd became very famous as the first all African-American Fighter Group known as "The Tuskegee Airmen", although at the time they were referred to them as "The Red Tails". The aircraft is now operated by the Hangar 11 Collection, owned by Peter Teichman, and will be performing in the flying display on Sunday 11th June.
