P 51, not the only Mustang aircraft.

I have noticed several members have had pictures of their car taken with P 51 Mustangs as a backdrop, I really hope to get one also. I have recently learned of another Mustang in the Air Force inventory late WW2 identified as the P 82 or the F 82, these were twin boom like the P 38 designed. for long range escort duty in the Pacific. There were only about 250 produced, and some were used during the Korean War. I would provide a link to the various websites but I don 't know how (still stuck in the 60's) you can Google P82 or F 82 for pictures and info. Hope those of you interested in military aircraft enjoy this.

Could that be the original wide body Mustang mod?

Yes it is exactly that. 2 Mustang P 51 joined together. Before we had the launching and emergency ditching point AKA Iwo Jima for our aircraft it was another solution for long range fighter/scout/reconnaissance style aircraft in the South Pacific.

The drop tanks on the P51 allowed the European bombing campaign to have fighter escort and the De Havilland Mosquito served as a reconnaissance.

All would be outfitted with the Merlin V12 Rolls Royce Supercharged gas piston before the end of the war. The engines would be produced by Packard/Rolls for war production. F-82 was operational by 1945 a little late but was serving in air wings by 1946. I grew up with no less than 3 Aces of WWII who got me hooked at age 5.

Great share as that generation started the 1/4 mile race on old airfields all over the United States. So it has every bit of business in this Forum.

The end of a War and the Start of the Hot Rod's and onto Pony Cars.
I would be interested to find what aircraft Carol Shelby got to test in his service during WWII?

Believe or not I was walking through the Toy Department at Wal-Mart on the way to the Restroom and looked over and they had that model on the shelf. The box has that picture posted above on it even.

In 1947, one of them set a piston powered aircraft speed record of over 5000 miles in 14 1/2 hours without refueling. That record STILL STANDS TODAY!! Amazing aircraft.
