    P-51 Mustang The Mustang Mk 4 entered Canadian service 1947 and number CB*569 belonged to Central Air Command Composite Flight located at RCAF Station Trenton. The Mustang Mk 4 was the RCAF's first modern post-war fighter and equipped mainly auxiliary squadrons until the late 1950s.

    Thats the History of our P51 I still think it was the best WW2 plane though

    441 and 442 squadrons began flying Mustang Mk.IV's (and some Mk.III's) in April 1945. 442 was the only RCAF squadron to see action in them before the war ended. One Fw-190 was downed, with another probable.

    My favourite will always be the Spitfire. :)

    I dont know what mine is, I like different planes for different reasons...I would probably say the Piaggio P.108 though, closely followed by the Fw-190 and P-38...

    -FW190 series for the 'technical' beauty

    My favorite isn't sexy, but was a workhorse, the C-47 Skytrain. When it came to haulin' ass and trash, the C-47 was up to the task.
