Path: Aviation RC model Airplanes P51 Mustang


The North American Aviation P-51 Mustang was an American long-range, single-seat fighter and fighter-bomber used during World War II, the Korean War and several other conflicts. The Mustang was among the best and most well-known fighters used by the U.S. Army Air Forces during World War II.

The North American P-51 Mustang has got to be the best American air superiority fighter of all times - it is also the most famous and beloved warbird of them all.

The P-51 also earns a place in history due to the first African-American fighter pilots who were commissioned in 1941 to help defend distressed bombers in the European theater. They became known as the Tuskegee Airmen. These nearly forgotten pilots fought with bravery and skill to save lives and prevent the loss of bombers to enemy fighters. They painted the tails of their P-51D Mustangs red and became know as The Red Tails.
