When the Fifth Air Force's 348th Fighter Group
traded its Thunderbolts for Mustangs they carried on a tradition of painting
prewar rudder stripes and as much color as possible onto their fighters.
Sitting in its Luzon revetment, sometime in 1945, the Group commander's
P-51D gives every indication of the pride crews had in their aircraft.
