In April 1940, in a New York City hotel, in front of a British commission for the purchase of war material, the first lines of what would become one of the best and most iconic fighters of the Second World War were scribbled: P51-D Mustang.
The P51-D Mustang was developed as a single-engine fighter for long-range escort. The design was by North America Aviation (NAA).
From 1943 the P-51 was used as an escort fighter for raids into German territory and as a fighter-bomber in the campaigns in North Africa, Italy and Central Europe.
The P51-D was the most numerous variant built of this aircraft, with almost 10,000 units built. This variant reached a cruising speed of 580 km/h, had a range of 2,700 km, was armed with 6 Browning M2 12.7 mm machine guns, could carry up to 907 kg of bombs and up to 10 HVAR T64 127 mm rockets.
