Wonderful photos of Mustang production
on October 14, 2010
A unique and fascinating look at the actual production of the P-51 illustrated with mostly high quality photos taken by factory photographers. The photos are finely reproduced on high quality paper. There's enough detail that even small items in the pictues come to life with a magnifying glass. Very few of these photos have been published elsewhere.
The accompanying text highlights the complexity and difficulty of deciding what to build and then building this landmark aircraft. Portions of letters and reports are reproduced to augment the clearly written text.
