Over the fleet near the beaches of Normandy.
Look at the discussion tab.
A few Mustangs fly over at the end of the final battle, destroying a Tiger tank and strafing German troops.
The checkerboarded nose is the marking of 82nd and 84th FS (rudder's color is the way to distinguish them).
Two Mustangs were used in filming :
- CAC CA-18 Mk.22 Mustang c/n 1517 s/n A68-192 registration D-FBBD (ex VH-FCB and PI-C651 and VR-HIU and G-HAEC) Big Beautiful Doll owned by the Old Flying Machine Company (until 2001); aircraft lost in a crash on 2011.
- P-51D registration N167F (ex N6320T and CF-PCZ) Old Crow owned by Scandinavian Historic Flight (1984-2001).
Both could be found among IMPDb: Frequently Seen Aircraft (Military Fixed-Wing)-
