The unforgettable flight in an old 1944 P-51 Mustang fighter seen from its cockpit

Although some terrible events were experienced in those years, the Second World War was also a golden age for aviation, which took a giant leap.

One of the most representative planes of those years is, without a doubt, the North American P-51 Mustang, known as the Cadillac of the air. This excellent fighter made its first flight in October 1940, already the war in Europe had begun, and more than 15,000 unit were built. During the war it was used in combat by pilots from the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, the Republic of China and Poland (this model equipped five squadrons of the Polish Air Force within the RAF).

One of the currently preserved units is a P-51D-25-NA with US civil registration N6328T, owned by Aircraft Guaranty Corp Trustee in Onalaska, Texas. This aircraft was built in 1944 at the North American factory in Inglewood, California, with the construction number 122-39713, being assigned to the United States Army Air Force (USAAF) that same year with the serial number 44- 73254.

Currently this plane, nicknamed “Louisiana Kid”, is still flying and has two seats. Here we can see it at an exhibition in Degerfeld, Germany, in a video published this afternoon by the YouTube channel Warbirds, in which we can share the unforgettable sensation of flying one of these fighters and listening to its 1,400 HP engine, with recorded images from inside his cockpit:
