What a Sound!

The P-51 Mustang is an American long-range, single-seat fighter and fighter-bomber that was used during World War II and the Korean War. With excellent speed, great low and high-altitude performances, and outstanding maneuverability, the P-51 became the world’s most famous fighter plane of all time.

Right at the heart of its performance is the Packard-built Rolls-Royce Merlin V12 engine which has a distinctive sound that can make the heart of every plane enthusiast beat faster. 

After some routine maintenance work, this P-51D Mustang fired up its engines – and it was ABSOLUTELY GLORIOUS! The sound of the Mustang’s engine never fails to send a chill down our spines every single time!
