Workmate flew both the P-51 and Meteor in Korea, story is nonsense says he. Aircrafts history,

Delivered 19/02/51.
Served in Korea with 77 Sqn.
Sqn Ldr Wilson was wounded in this aircraft 09/51 when cannon fragments entered the cockpit, he managed to get the aircraft back to Kimpo. On 06/02/52 searching low level for F/Lt Hannan who was in A77-616, Sgt Phillip Zupp was hit by ground fire blowing off his canopy and inflicting injuries to his face. Returned to Kimpo and landed. Failed to return after a ground attack mission after attack run on two tunnels 3 mi E of Sinmak and was last seen climbing away from target area 27/01/53.
Crew; FLGOFF Francis H G Booth (RAF Exchange).
Struck off 18/03/53.
Looking at various cutaways - it would appear the 'footage' shows him flying with no fuel tanks intact - situated just behind the cockpit.
