The P-51 was one of the first fighters to use a laminar-flow airfoil, which became standard on most later, high performance fighters. This wing design, along with the low drag airframe, resulted in very high speeds. In addition, a large fuel capacity, coupled with external fuel tanks, allowed the Mustang a range of more than 2,000 miles, making it possible to escort bombers all the way from England to Germany.

In 1948, shortly after the creation of the U.S. Air Force as a separate service, they introduced a new system of designation, moving from P for Pursuit to F for Fighter. This means that the Mustang in the EAA collection was a P-51 when it was manufactured in 1944, but when it left military service it had been re-designated as an F-51. In the mid-’60s, it was converted to a Cavalier Mustang by Trans-Florida Aviation, the most visually distinctive modification being the taller tail.

Its serial number is 44-75007N, its civilian registration is N3451D, but this airplane is best known by the name on the nose, Paul I. For more than 25 years, beginning with the airplane’s donation to EAA in 1977 by Robert Love of the Pacific Military Air Museum, EAA Founder Paul Poberezny flew the Mustang regularly at air shows and fly-ins, not to mention the annual EAA convention in Oshkosh. Paul even flew the Mustang in air races in Reno, Nevada, and Homestead, Florida, before retiring it to the museum’s Eagle Hangar in 2003.

This EAA Red Canoe Paul I P-51 Mustang proudly features the Paul I markings. Made from 100% premium cotton and manufactured in North America, this T-shirt offers exceptional comfort and quality.
