Manufacturer Description

The F-51D Mustang was basically a P-51D that was renamed due to the new designation scheme applied throughout the USAF. The P (pursuit) in P-51 designation was replaced with F (fighter) in 1948, while the aircraft were still serving the USAF or Air National Guard (ANG). Despite the re-designation, the F-51Ds, along with other Mustangs, remained in service from 1946 to 1951; some of them were transferred to Air Force Reserve and ANG. The F-51D Mustangs also proved their worth in the Korean War, when they impressively hit target that short-range jet fighters could not. They served not only the USAF, but also the South Korean, South African, and Royal Australian Air Forces as fighter-bombers for close-support and interdiction missions in Korea until 1953. In fact, the last USAF F-51 Mustang that was withdrawn from service in the late 1950s was an F-51D, which served the West Virginia ANG.
