What I do know is, that this has been the baddest Mustang in the world the last two years.

Strega FTW .. Litterally!

Just to prove to any doubters that "Snort" really loves to wipe the weeds, I offer this departure in an F-86 at OSH:

IIRC, the radiator is down there. Mustangs are liquid cooled and were very vulnerable to ground fire when on ground attack missions. One round through the radiator and the engine could/would seize.

Hence, the P-47 got the bulk of the (so called) "Dicing Missions."

First off, GREAT THREAD!

Now, a bit of Mustang trivia. The radiator and inlet scoop were very carefully placed and designed so as not to interrupt the airflow over the wing. After testing the design was found to have an unintended benefit. The air after passing through the radiator was heated and exited the outlet at a higher speed than when it was taken in essentially creating thrust. Not much, but measurable.

Keep the photos coming.

How cool would it be to be Snort or Vlado or any of the small handful of guys/gals to whom the non-flying owners will just toss the keys and say "Make Me Look Good!" ? :rolleyes::cool:
