One of the most versatile and recognizable fighters of World War II, the P-51 was a staple of the Allied forces and contributed significantly to securing air superiority. The Mustang saw action in nearly every theatre of the war, including European, North African, and limited service in the Pacific; in all, over 15,000 were manufactured, and they accounted for nearly 5,000 enemy aircraft shot down. Even with the rapid progression of jet technology in the postwar years, the rugged P-51 was one of the premier fighters of the Korean War, and remained in service through the early 1980s.
