... As well as being economical to produce, the Mustang was a fast, well-made, and highly durable aircraft. The definitive version, the P-51D, was powered by the Packard V-1650-7, a two-stage two-speed supercharged 12-cylinder Packard-built version of the legendary Rolls-Royce Merlin engine, and was armed with six .50 caliber (12.7 mm) Browning M2/AN machine guns, a version of the Browning adapted for use in combat aircraft. After World War II and the Korean conflict, many Mustangs were converted for civilian use, especially air racing.

At this web site you can see several copyrighted images from Bernard Zee of a beautiful P-38 recently restored and under Red Bull livery. Wow. The web site says it will soon be taken to Austria.
It has the early model streamlined cowls that look great. And other images show an induction across the top of each engine that I don’t recognize. Maybe it’s an early cowl feature I don’t remember. I wonder if this is the plane Lefty Gardner used to fly? His airshow act at Reno every year was my favorite. He did all the classic maneuvers, but instead of whiplash inducing radical aerobatics, his maneuvers were graceful and huge, taking up the whole airshow area, like he was the Blue Angels, except with the sound of those purring Alisons loafing along like he was flying out to breakfast.
