The P-51 Mustang is an American long-range fighter and the most celebrated American fighter of World War II. The Mustang was the first single-engine plane based in Britain to penetrate Germany, first to reach Berlin and first to make a major scale, all-fighter sweep specifically to hunt down the dwindling Luftwaffe. During WWII it is credited with the destruction of nearly 5,000 German planes. It is estimated that 20 enemy planes were destroyed for every Mustang was that lost in action.
The P51 was simply a full step of advancement ahead of any other WWII plane, and everyone else found themselves rapidly having to catch up. One of the highest honors accorded to the Mustang was President Truman calling it "the most aerodynamically perfect pursuit plane in existence."
