Many call it the greatest fighter plane ever built, a proposition I heartily agree with: the beautiful North American P-51 Mustang. I once heard a Mustang pilot say, “If you wanted to turn left, all you had to do was roll your eyes to the left.”

This is absolutey brilliant the way you have captured, in pencil, the highly polished ali skin of the P51D. It was the USA Packard/Rolls Royce supercharged engine that gave it the edge to do all that high altitude bomber escorting.Into FavsCheers Neil
Yes, Neil, you’re 100 percent right. It was the perfect marriage of the fabulous US-built airframe and the fabulous British-built Merlin. What a machine! Thank you for all the nice comments.
Excellent redition of the P-51D John. Great drawing. – Ted
