Your right but it almost did. The H model went to the pacific right at the end of the war but I dont believe she saw any combat. Its was use for home defence with Guard units. But She did serve during the Korean War just not in Korea.
The F-51H wasn't used in Korea, due to the lack of spare parts and the lighter airframe. More often you would find F-51D's.
Thanks I got 2 shots on this day ,the other is a D model with an H tail. That was a post WWII but not sure on that one being a war vet.
huh, you don't see very many Korean War Mustangs if at all, nice shot
