North American P-51 Mustang

Produced by North American Aviation, the P-51 Mustang was one of the most successful, most famous aircraft in World War II. It was introduced on 1942, flew most of the time as long-range bomber escorts in raids over Germany, and also saw limited service in the Pacific Theatre. In the beginning of the Korean War, the P-51 had been the main fighter of the United Nations but was forced to convert into the ground attack role with the introduction of more and more jet planes. Nevertheless, it remained in service with some air forces until the early-1980's, an extraordinary long period of time for a fighter that was introduced in 1942.
