Default F-51 in Latin America

After World War II, the P-51 Mustang served in the air arms of more than 25 nations. During the war, a Mustang cost about $51,000, while many hundreds were sold postwar for the nominal price of one dollar to signatories of the Inter-American Treaty of Reciprocal Assistance, ratified in Rio de Janeiro in 1947.

Guatemalan Air Force / Fuerza Aérea Guatemalteca / FAG
In the 1960s, the Guatemalan Air Force used 30 F-51D Mustang as strike aircraft and basic interceptor, supplied from surplus US stocks. The service period was from 1954 to the early 1970s.

Nicaragua Air Force / Fuerza Aérea Nicaragüense / GN
Fuerza Aerea de Nicaragua (GN) purchased 26 P-51D Mustangs from Sweden in 1954 and later received 30 P-51D Mustangs from the U.S. together with two TF-51 models from MAP after 1954. All aircraft of this type were retired from service by 1964.

Some of the most recent restorations here in the US have started with Central American Mustangs...

Really beautiful skin, loved the weathering. When the DCS P-47 finally cames along, could you please do a skin for Chile's ? .. Half latinamerica received the Mustang, the other half the Thunderbolt



Thanks a lot for sharing
