By D. P. Broer on August 31, 2002
Format: Paperback
Arguably one of the best P-51 Mustang photobooks around at this moment, this 128-page book is crammed with good to very good colour photograps of surviving P-51 Mustangs. You will find most variants depicted here, such as an P-51A, an A-36, a P-51B (The look-a-like of the famous 'Shangri La' of Don Gentile), P-51Ds, a P-51H to the Cavalier Mk2s. Even the Piper Enforcer gets its share.
The only things missing for me, comparing this book to 'Spitfire, Flying Legend' or 'Hurricane, a Fighter Legend' from the same publisher, were some more background information and WW2 colour photographs of the Mustang and photographs of Mustangs operating in the Korean War.

If you love classic warbirds and air shows, you'll really enjoy this book. There are many fantastic pictures of restored, flying P-51 Mustangs taken over the years from various shows and collectors. This is the next best thing to being there, unless you're a professional photographer, these are much better shots than most of us could ever hope to take.

There are a few P-51B's, C's, most are D models in various paint/camouflage schemes. There's even a P-48 (the Enforcer) which I'd never seen before. The captions are about the individual planes & owners, not a history of the Mustang, not a good book for a modeler, unless you just wanted exterior shots - no cockpits or wheel wells here.

Not a `must have' but a nice to have, I enjoy seeing such sharp images of this classic plane. I was able to pick this up for a few dollars, not bad for the price.
