Having seen action with RAF No. 133 Squadron (which later became the 336th FS), prior to the establishment of the 4th Fighter Group in September of 1942, James Goodson was one of the most experienced and highest-scoring American pilots in the ETO on the morning of D-Day. He had claimed fifteen strafing kills and fifteen aerial victories by the time he was downed by flak in this Mustang while strafing the German airfield at Neubrandenberg on June 20, 1944. CO of the 336th FS at the time he was shot down, Goodson spent the rest of the war as a POW.

The North American Aviation P-51 Mustang was a single-seat World War II fighter aircraft. First flown on October 26, 1940, the P-51 was designed and built in just 117 days. It flew most of its missions  as a bomber escort in raids over Germany, helping  ensure Allied air superiority from 1944. As well as being economical to produce, the Mustang was a fast and durable aircraft
