RAF Mustangs...

It crossed my mind today as I sat watching gun camera footage from September 1944 that there are no RAF Mustangs I/II/III/IV flying in the UK today.
I have been watching quite a bit of RAF gun camera film from WWII and there has been a fair amount of Mustang footage. Today was 19 and 65 Squadron film. 19 Squadron (pictured above) were, of course, based at Duxford at one time.

So the Mustang was used quite a bit by the RAF - if my history is right the RAF were the first to use the new Mustangs operationally.

So maybe the time has come to have a nice RAF Mustang up in the wide blue yonder...
