The North American Aviation P-51 M_ustang was a long-range single-seat World War II fighter aircraft. Designed and built in just 117 days, the M_ustang first flew in Royal Air Force (RAF) service as a fighter-bomber and reconnaissance aircraft before conversion to a bomber escort, employed in raids over Germany, helping ensure Allied air superiority from early 1944. The P-51 was in service with Allied air forces in Europe and also saw limited service against the Japanese in the Pacific War. The M_ustang began the Korean War as the United Nations' main fighter, but was relegated to a ground attack role when superseded by jet fighters early in the conflict. Nevertheless, it remained in service with some air forces until the early 1980s.
As well as being economical to produce, the M_ustang was a fast, well-made, and highly durable aircraft. The definitive version, the P-51D, was powered by the Packard V-1650, a two-stage two-speed supercharged version of the legendary Roll_s-Royc_e Merlin engine, and was armed with six .50 caliber (12.7mm) M2 B_rowning machine guns.
After World War II and the Korean War, many M_ustangs were converted for civilian use, especially air racing. The M_ustang's reputation was such that, in the mid-1960s, F_ord Motor Company's Designer John Najjar proposed the name for a new youth-oriented coupe automobile after the fighter. (wikipedia)
