P-51C 43-25147 c/n 103-26778 was constructed in 1943 and was flown by Lt. William Whisner of the 352nd FG/487th FS. On June 6, 1944, D-Day Whisner‘s P-51 "Queen Elizabeth" was hit by flak and crash landed. Whisner evaded capture and was saved by Canadian forces. Whisner had a total of 15.5 victories. Later, parts of the aircraft along with some Israeli P-51 parts the aircraft was restored and eventually ended up as "Princess Elizabeth" again and in 2007 joined "The Gathering of Mustangs & Legends".

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."
