PC-9/A is a little bit smaller, a lot lighter, half the weapon payload, and half the loiter time.

Visually they're very similar and have similar in-flight performance characteristics.

Kev, I had read somewhere that the P-51H was a total dog. Know anything about this?

dog?

no The P51H was a overall performance leap over the P51D. It simply did not gain as much fame simply because entered service too late to see combat in ww2, and in Korea The made the Decision to send P51D's instead simply because thicker airframemeant it would be more rugged in the ground attack role when faced with gunfire.

It had a Lighter Airframe, more powerful engine with an automatic Turbocharger. Engine offered higher boost settings in WEP at 2200 HP for 7 minutes, compared to the P51D's maximum 1720 HP with WEP. ( It could run 85- 90 HG) especially amazing performance with Higher octane fuel.

Also had Faster Top speed. 487 MPH at 25,000 FT compared to the D's 440 MPH.

I've always wondered why the H model never made it to the Reno Air Races. I had been aware of its superior performance compared to the D model but I have never heard of an H model being raced. Do you supose it is due to fewer numbers probuced?

there were 555 of them produced out of the 2000 planned. Mass production stiill, but nowhere near as much as the P51D. Simple, war ended, and no more airframes were needed. Post ww2 jet powered aircraft were seen the future of airforces and replaced pistons over the years.

From some internet searches there is only 2 Surviving P51H in flying condition the US. so its a much rarer bird than the P51D. ( can see from the same source how many more owned P51D's there are)

I don't really read much about air races so i can only speculate, but logical conclusion would be it is a rare bird, and perhaps owners are not interested in racing. That or he doesn't fly often due to shortage of spare parts, thus not wanting to push the aircraft to its limits?

Yeah pushing an aircraft to its limits is a luxury that people who own very common aircraft can do.

In the UK most insurers won't touch you unless you agree never to use more than 40-ish% throttle I believe, even for spitfires whose spare parts are about as common as dirt (if slightly more expensive)
