"Why should we have a navy at all? There are no enemies for it to fight except apparently the Army Air Force."
- General Carl Spaatz, Commander of the US 8th Army Air Force, after WWII

No other aircraft of WWII could fly as high, go as far, or fight as hard as the famed Mustang. Piloted by a record 281 Aces, this agile and ferocious dogfighter tallied more kills than any other Allied airplane. As the bombers of the Eighth Air Force fought their way deep into Hitler's Germany, it was the Mustang that cleared the skies of Luftwaffe fighters. The powerful Rolls-Royce Merlin engine gave the Mustang a speed of 445 mph. Re-styled with an aerodynamic bubble canopy for greater visibility, and outfitted with 6 fast-firing .50 caliber machine guns, the P-51 became the best fighter of the war.

Pictured here is a signed 1:48 scale replica of a USAAF North American P-51D Mustang Fighter that was piloted by Col. Arthur Jeffrey and nicknamed "Boomerang Jr.", which was attached to the 434th Fighter Squadron, 479th Fighter Group, during December 1944. Now in stock!

Historical Account: "Of Lightnings and Mustangs" - After arriving in Europe, Arthur Jeffrey became the top-scoring P-38 Ace with the 479th Fighter Group, and later became the Group's leading scorer after they converted to P-51s. He went on to command the 434th Fighter Squadron.

Arthur Jeffrey had the distinction of being the first pilot to shoot down the Luftwaffe's jet-rocket aircraft - the Me-163. He flew 82 combat missions and was credited with 14 aerial victories.

Arthur Jeffrey ended his tour as a lieutenant colonel in command of the 434th Fighter Squadron, with a list of combat awards including the Silver Star, Distinguished Flying Cross with one Oak Leaf Cluster, and the Air Medal with 16 Oak Leaf Clusters.
