As one of the most capable fighter aircraft of WWII, the North American Mustang allowed Allied pilots to take a heavy toll of Luftwaffe aircraft, both in the air and on the ground.  With many units painting their aircraft in highly visible schemes, they hoped to lure Luftwaffe fighters into combat, whilst also aiding recognition of friendly aircraft in the melee of a dogfight.

 

Always a favourite with the modeller, this latest Mustang marks an aircraft flying with the 352nd Fighter Group, the famed ‘Blue Nosers’ of Bodney.
