Doing it like it's 1944

Because 19 Squadron didn't always fly Spitfires.  Razz

I've always thought that the Mustang was more or less a british plane anyway. Built to a RAF spec, Rolls Royce Merlin engine with a Packard sticker on, first models in service in the RAF, then the bubble canopy idea borrowed from the RAF who were already installing it on some Spits, and Typhoons etc. So its ours, and looks better in RAF colours  Razz (best not tell our cousins over the pond)
