P-51 Mustang Fighter (RCAF)Avi_P51RCAF_Gry_11x14 $45.00
Our North American P51-D Mustang art print profiles one of the finest fighters flown by the Allies during WWII. The Americans and British were the first to adopt the Mustang. Eventually, five RCAF squadrons (400, 414, 430, 441 and 442) used Mustangs in reconnaissance and long-range escort duties. The 442 flew the MKIV in the last Allied operational fighter mission of the entire European theatre of the Second World War—flying fighter cover for naval operations near the Channel Islands the day after VE Day.
The Inspiration behind our North American P51-D Mustang Art Print
I am a longtime fan of aircraft, WWII warplanes in particular. The style and simplicity of aircraft designs of the era inspire my art. The P-51 has always been a favorite of mine. This version, styled after the aircraft currently owned by Vintage Wings, is painted in modified period markings of the Royal Canadian Air Force's 442 Squadron to give it a distinctive 'Canuck' look. All RCAF aircraft were painted with the RAF roundel until after WWII when the RCAF adopted its own distinct maple leaf version.
