    Have to go back and did up IARCs to get 'somewhat' accurate.

    May 25, 1944 is approximate for P-51D-5-NA, August 15 for P-51D-10-NA, November 25 for P-15-NA, December 20 for P-51D-20, March 20, 1945 for P-51D-25. The early P-51D-5-NT and K-1s were operational in late November and K-5s in January, 1945.

    These are approximate and you need to review all of the early model breaks of the IARC's for those serial numbers to better precision.
