At the start of the Korean War, a significant number of Mustang fighter aircraft were available to the U.S. Air Force, although most of them were now serving with Air National Guard units. Now designated F-51D, the Mustang was no longer the premier fighter aircraft it was in WWII, due to the advent of jet technology, but it was still a highly capable long-range strike aircraft. As a close air support aircraft, the Korean War Mustang dropped more napalm and fired more rockets than any other aircraft involved in the conflict, as it served with four air forces in support of the United Nations. It was also involved in some of the first spiraling dogfights with the new Soviet MiG-15 jet fighter. Highly susceptible to the latest anti-aircraft defenses, many close air support F-51Ds were lost during the Korean conflict.

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
