North American P-51 Mustang
You can call the P-51 Mustang a North American classic. It was first developed for the British as a medium-altitude fighter plane during the Second World. However, it surpassed all expectations. It was able to reach greater heights and more power when the Rolls Royce Merlin engine, and then the Packard V-1650-7, was introduced to it. This model played a vital role in reconnaissance missions and escorted a lot of bombers in several wars due to its long-range capabilities. In recent years, it became sought-after thanks to its historically accurate total restoration. The restored units can go for more than a million dollars on the market. It has a max speed of 430 miles per hour and can deliver an excellent time if you are fortunate enough to be able to take it out for a spin.
Did you know that the Supermarine Spitfire was the aircraft most produced by the British during the Second World War? It was the only one that was continually produced during the conflict as well. There had been a couple of variants of it with different wing designs. However, the 50 Supermarine Spitfire continues to be airworthy even today. In fact, a lot of people consider it the most important aircraft during the Second World War thanks to its contribution to the Battle of Britain. Recently, a unit was auctioned off for 2.5 million euros or almost $3 million. The Spitfire superseded the Hawker Hurricane over the course of the war. Civilians want to get their hands on this model thanks to its historical value.
