Hobby Master 1:48 Air Power Series Diecast Model

North American P-51D Mustang – "414789," "Missouri Armada," Capt. J.B. England, 362nd FS, 357th FG, USAAF, 1944

1:48 Scale.  Length: 8".  Wingspan: 9.25"



John England received his pilot wings in March 1943 and was assigned to the 357th FG. It was one year before he scored his first aerial victory. The 357th was based at RAF Leiston, England near Yoxford, and became known as the “Yoxford Boys”. In August 1944, England became the CO of the 362nd FS until April 1945. P-51D Mustang No. 44-14789 arrived in September 1944 and became Lt. England’s aircraft. At the end of World War II, Lt. England was the 357th FG's second highest scoring Ace with 17.5 victories, one less than Kit Carson. In 1954 England was killed in France when he avoided hitting a building during a dead-stick landing attempt. England AFB in Louisiana was named in his honor.

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 P-51 was a fast and durable aircraft.
