Went to an airshow and they had P-51 on display that was getting overhauled. Just in case your curious Champion spark plugs.  :)

The Merlin engine has a cousin, the Meteor (tank engine)! Here's two of them in action.

EDIT: Sorry I just noticed this in the 5D MK III Sample Images section. For the record, the picture below is taken with a 7D and 70-200 f/2.8 IS II.

Beautiful plane. Saw my first one this year at an airshow, was not expecting the howl it made in a dive, I grew to love it during that display. And then promptly forgot all about it when the Vulcan flew over and made all the birds for a few miles just disappear  ;D

The father of an older colleague of mine flew both Spitfires and Mustangs in WW2, flying out to Norway and dog fighting like blazes with the Luftwaffe squadrons stationed there. He told me that the Spitfire was so sensitive to fly the pilot could bank it by just leaning to one side. Newbies taking off in the Spits for the first few times would bunny hop through the air as they tried to keep level.

However he said the pilots much preferred the P-51 because they could trim it to fly hands off, something you couldn't do with the Spit. By the time you had flown out to Norway in a Spit you were physically knackered and not in the best condition to take on the crack German squadrons operating from there. Then of course you had to fly back, so because the P-51 was more civilised it was much preferred.

The Mustang has always been one of my favorite aircraft.

The friend is the Supermarine Spitfire the original source of the Rolls-Royce Merlin engine that made the P-51 the best propeller driven plane of WWII
