The second production P51 Mustang

Roger A Freeman; Mustang at War, Doubleday 1974

A rare period colour photo of the second Mustang, AG346 off the assembly line. Here it is taxying out at Mines Field in Los Angeles in the summer of 1941. The plane went on to fly many combat missions with the RAF, finally being shot down by antiaircraft fire on the 20th of August 1944.
