Redbirddog plane

Came across this plane in a hanger in Livermore, California.

Ok, So not quite a Hungarian Pointer, but damn, what a great plane.

North American P51 Mustang
Red Dog XII

Among one of the most famous fighters of World War II, the P-51 Mustang has its roots in both Britain and the USA. Originally overlooked by the USAAF, the P-51 did not see action with American forces until March 1943. Once its full potential had been developed, the USA realized that this aircraft had been ignored for far too long a time. With the forging of the American airframe with the British Rolls-Royce Merlin engine, it would be unmatched by any other piston aircraft of World War II. (Graphic courtesy of www.skywear.com)
