The only difference between the North American P-51B and C variants was the B was built in
Inglewood and the C in Dallas. The B variant first flew on May 5, 1943 and the C variant first flew
on August 5, 1943. The B variant saw 1,988 built while the C variant saw 1,750 built. On
December 1, 1943 the P-51B Mustang flew its first combat mission and in March 1944 provided
bomber escort to Berlin. The high shape of the P-51B/C dorsal spine gave it the name
"Razorback".


P-51B 43-6315 "Ding Hao" (Chinese phrase, "very good" or "number one") was the second
P-51B assigned to Lt. Col. James Howard. This aircraft had the new improved sliding Malcolm
Hood canopy. James Howard was an American born in China and moved to the USA, became a
USN pilot, left to join the AVG and later flew with the 354th FG/ 487th FS. He is credited with 6
Japanese victories and 6 more confirmed plus 1 probable and 2 damaged, for a total of 8.333
during World War II.
