P-51 Mustang

First flown by the Royal Air Force, P-51 Mustangs were then used in World War II by the U.S. to escort B-29 bombers. By the end of the war, P-51s had destroyed almost 5,000 enemy aircraft - more than any other fighter in Europe. Following its military service, the P-51 became popular with civilians and today is an air-show mainstay.
