When Hermann Goring, Commander of the German Luftwaffe during WWII, first saw a Mustang over Berlin he said, “Now the War is surely lost”. One of the most effective, famous and beautiful fighter aircraft of WWII, the P-51 was fast (with speeds over 400 mph), nimble, well-made and highly durable. The Mustang flew most of its wartime missions as a bomber escort in raids over Germany. Some of the most successful escorting was done by the Tuskegee Airmen - “The Red Tails”. Dubbed “The Ace Maker” the P-51 is the “Muscle Plane” that inspired the Ford Mustang Muscle Car of the 60’s. With more then 15,000 P-51's originally produced there are still about 150 in flying condition today.
This plane is made from Diet Coke Cans but can be made from any 12 or 16 oz Beverage Can.
