Early in 1945 P-51Cs, Ds and Ks began to arrive in the Pacific Theater of Operation since they were no longer needed in large numbers in Europe. The first units to receive the Mustangs were the 8th and 32nd Pursuit Squadrons of the 3rd Pursuit Group. These aircraft were also assigned to the 3rd, 4th and 5th Fighter Groups and eventually equipped seven Chinese Air Force Air Groups. Between January and June 1945 and with over eight hundred aircraft between the two forces they carried out attacks against Japanese forces in occupied China.

North American P-51C Mustang

Designed to meet an RAF requirement for fighter-bomber and reconnaissance aircraft, the P-51 Mustang was first flown on October 26th, 1940. This versatile aircraft was capable of escorting bombers on long-range missions, engaging in dogfights, and dropping down to destroy German targets on the ground. At least eight versions of the P-51 were produced, but it was the definitive P-51D that gave the Mustang its classic warbird appearance. Britain and the US both tested the airframe with the Rolls-Royce Merlin engine, which gave the aircraft tremendous performance gains. The Truman Senate War Investigating Committee called the Mustang "the most aerodynamically perfect pursuit plane in existence."
