Later in WWII the Allied bombers were flying deep into Germany but suffered tremendous losses
because of the lack of range the fighter escorts had. German fighters would wait beyond the
range of the Allied fighters and then attack the vulnerable bombers. Once the P-51 called
Mustang by the British had the Allison engine replaced with a British Merlin it possessed the high
performance that had been lacking. With drop tanks the P-51 had the range to escort bombers all
the way to Berlin and back.

P-51D #9255/BA-U was first delivered to the USAAF in 1945 as 44-74602 c/n 122-41142 and
served with training units until December 6, 1950 when the aircraft arrived at the RCAF 424th
(Auxiliary) Squadron (City of Hamilton) based at Mount Hope, Hamilton, Ontario. RCAF
squadrons flew P-51s in WWII within the RAF and after the war Canada received 100 Mustangs
that stayed in service until 1956. P-51 #9255/BA-U was sold to its first U.S. civilian and on
December 30, 1958 was registered as N6318T.
