- Exact maxFlite type: P-51D-20-NA, 44-72218 Big Beautiful Doll, flown by Lt. Col. John D. Landers while serving with the 78th Fighter Group, 84th Fighter Squadron. The pilot is also shown in detail on the wind spinner.
- The American pilot Colonel John D. Landers scored 14.5 aerial victories and made 20 enemy aircraft unusable on the ground.
- The manufacturer of the P-51 Mustang was North American Aviation Inc. This was founded in 1928 and bought by Boeing in 1996. Other well-known aircraft from this manufacturer were the AT-6 trainer aircraft, the B-25, and the F-86 Saber and F-100 Super Saber jets.
- The Mustang’s success story only began with the combination of the American aircraft design and the British 12-cylinder V-engine Packard Merlin.
- 8000 pieces of the P-51 Mustang “D” version were built from 1944 onwards. The wind turbine manufacturer maxFlite also dreams of these quantities.
- The maximum range with additional tanks was 3300 km. That was by far the longest range of any single-engine Allied combat aircraft.
- The North American P-51 Mustang was the first aircraft that was designed for the wing with a laminar profile. This was characterized by a particularly low air resistance.
- The main designer of the Mustang was Edgar O. Schmued, who was born in Hornbach (Germany) in 1899. He would certainly have put a maxFlite XL Mustang windmill in his garden.
