The North American Aviation Mustang was created out of a British requirement for a modern fighter aircraft. As part of the condition of the sale of the new fighter to Britain, two examples were to be provided to the US Army Air Force for evaluation. 

Initially ignored despite its clear performance superiority over other airframes in service and undergoing testing, it would eventually evolve to become one of the most iconic fighters of all the Second World War.  

The P-51 would be the mount of many famous aviators, amongst them were the Tuskegee Airmen. These brave aviators were a group of African American pilots who formed the 332nd Fighter Group and the 477th Bombardment Group. The fighter pilots became known as the “Red Tails” due to the distinctive markings they applied to their P-47s and later their P-51s. 

Despite the challenges of a time of racial segregation, the pilots and crews persevered and became amongst the most famous units to serve in the USAAF. The 332nd would be awarded three Distinguished Unit Citations and credited with 1578 combat missions and the destruction of 112 enemy aircraft in the air (including three Me262 jet fighters on a single day) and 150 on the ground. 

This livery pack recreates five airframes of the 332nd during their deployment to Italy in 1945. 

  • P-51D 44-15569 “Bunnie” flown by Captain Roscoe C Brown Jr, was credited with being the first 15th Air Force pilot to shoot down a jet fighter 

  • P-51D 44-63160 “Dearly Beloved” flown by 1st Lt Earl R Lane 

  • P-51D 44-14151 “Little Freddie” flown by Captain Fredrick E Hutchins Sr 

  • P-51D 44-15669 “Meatball Rap II” flown by 1st Lt Charles A Lane 

  • P-51D 44-72035 “Tall In The Saddle” flown by 2nd Lt George Hardy
