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.

The 348th FG converted from P-47s to P-51s in early 1945 and assigned bomber escort attacks
on Kyushu. From February 1945 to mid 1945 the unit was based in Luzon and then moved to
Le Shima Island near Okinawa. By January 1945, Dunham was the Deputy Group Commander
and had 15 victories scored over New Guinea and the Philippines. Dunham took a break back in
the U.S. returning to the 348th FG on Le Shima. Now equipped with a P-51K Mrs. Bonnie,
Dunham scored his sixteenth and only Mustang victory.


Specifications for the North American Aviation P-51D Mustang

The P-51K was built in Dallas as a variant of the P-51D and equipped with an Aeroproducts
propeller instead of the Hamilton Standard propeller. Combat crews routinely replaced the
Aeroproducts propeller with the Hamilton Standard propeller.
