The North American Aviation P-51 Mustang was an American long-range single-seat World War II fighter aircraft, and one of the most effective planes in WWII. The P51 Mustang gave the bombers of the US 8th Air Force the fighter cover it so desperately needed over occupied Europe and, therefore, greatly assisted the bombing campaign against Nazi Germany in World War II. The P51 Mustang had an astonishing success rate; its ratio for kills to losses was said to have been 19 kills for every 1 Mustang lost. The P51 Mustang is credited with the destruction of 4,950 German planes more than any other Allied fighter and some of these kills included the jet powered ME 262. Such was the success of the Mustang, that the Senate War Investigating Committee set up by Harry Truman in 1944, called it the most aerodynamically perfect pursuit plane in existence. Print is matted to include a small piece of P-51 metal "skin" from a restoration project. Certificate of Authenticity included.
