Wallpaper Description:
The North American P-51 Mustang has gone down in the history books as one of the greatest World War Two fighters. It was originally designed to fulfill an RAF urgent request for a new long-range fighter plane to help combat the German Luftwaffe (in addition to the RAF Supermarine Spitfire and Hawker Hurricane). The prototype NA-73X airframe was finished on September 9th, 1940 (just 102 days after the contract was signed by the British Purchasing Commission) and the first Mustang flight was on October 26th, 1940. By 1942 the Mustang was established in RAF and USAAF squadrons. The Brits initially used the Mustang for reconnaissance and as a fighter-bomber but ultimately the Allison V-170 engined P-51A Mustang Mk.I/II wasn’t that great and although it operated reasonably well at lower levels, it performed poorly at higher altitudes (not ideal given it was intended to be a primary fighter, hence the RAF using it in alternate roles).
