Twin Mustang by Schiffer Publishing

Description

Fulfilled by our friends at Schiffer Publishing

Aviation monograph of the F-82 Twin Mustang, an unusual variant of the famous P-51 Mustang.

Developed during the Second World War, but too late to see combat, the Twin Mustang was created by the engineering team at North American Aviation to provide long-range escort for larger, slow bombers.

  • With the outbreak of the Korean Conflict, the Twin Mustangs were fortuitously positioned to provide immediate impact to the advantage of United Nations forces in the opening stages of the action.
  • Later, a record-breaking long-distance flight was accomplished by a single aircraft, and the type was found useful for testing numerous experimental designs, from ramjet bodies to the first air-to-air missile concepts.
  • The plane was effective as a radar-toting night fighter, and it could also carry large bombs, rockets, extended-range fuel tanks, and an eight-gun nacelle, providing a substantial increase in machine gun firepower.

This book also details the amazing story of XP-82 44-83887 from test bed use, to a landing accident and disposal, to its discovery and restoration to flying status.

Author John Gourley is a crash/rescue fire protection specialist who has served in this capacity both in the United States Air Force and as a civilian contractor.
