WWII P-51 Mustang Posters

According to the USAF museum: The P-51 Mustang was originally used in Europe for photo recon and ground support, due to its limited high-altitude performance. But once the British Rolls-Royce "Merlin" engine was added to the P-51 Mustang, speed improved as well as increasing its service ceiling. Merlin-powered P51s first entered combat over Europe in 1943, providing high-altitude escort to B-17s and B-24s. By war's end, P-51s had destroyed 4,950 enemy aircraft in the air, more than any other fighter in Europe ... P51 Mustangs served in nearly every combat zone, including the Pacific where they escorted B-29s to Japan from Iwo Jima. During the Korean War, P-51Ds were used primarily for close support of ground forces until withdrawn from combat in 1953. For more information, visit the USAF Museum Web Site
