Description The North American Aviation P-51 Mustang was a long-range single-seat World War II fighter aircraft. The P-51 was in service with Allied air forces in Europe and also saw limited service against the Japanese in the Pacific War. This P-51B version, with the Malcom hood canopy, was the favorite of its pilot, Col. Bud E. Anderson. He scored the most victories with this model and is a proud member today, of The Greatest Generation.
