Artist's Description

The painting is a combination of water colors, and ink on paper.

The North American Aviation P-51 Mustang is an American long- range, single- seat fighter and fighter- bomber used during World War II, the Korean War and other conflicts. The Mustang was designed in 1940 by North American Aviation (NAA) in response to a requirement of the British Purchasing Commission. The Purchasing Commission approached North American Aviation to build Curtiss P-40 fighters under license for the Royal Air Force (RAF). Rather than build an old design from another company, North American Aviation proposed the design, and production of a more modern fighter. The prototype NA-73X airframe was rolled out on 9 September 1940, 102 days after the contract was signed, and first flew on 26 October.

This particular plane is the P-51 Mustang “Margaret IV”, serial 44-63984, assigned to Maj. James Buckley Tapp (8 victories) of the 78th FS, 15th FG, of the 7th AF, USAAF, 1945.
