A Tribute to the P-51 Mustang and the brave airmen who flew this legendary aircraft during WWII
The winter of 1944-45 was cold, bitterly cold. Plunging temperatures brought ice, freezing fog and heavy falls of snow. All across East Anglia runways stood bleak and frost-bound. The Eighth Air Force was often grounded, their bombers under wraps, engines oiled, warmed and ready for any break in the banks of murky freezing fog that would allow them to fly. When those breaks in the weather came, the Eighth Air Force was back into action.
