I updated my collection of pictures of the P-51 Mustang relating to 122 (NEI) Squadron Medan. Many thanks to P.Guit and P.Wolf. CW Bastiaans (opa) staand links.
The definitive version, the P-51D, was powered by the Packard V-1650-7, a license-built version of the Rolls-Royce Merlin 66 two-stage two-speed supercharged engine.
The engine sound’s like this.. or try 14 P-51 Mustangs Simultaneous Engine Run and Takeoffs.
When the war against Japan ended, the Dutch Mustangs were used in a futile attempt to suppress the Indonesian nationalists.
