Beautiful Car, not to mention a beautiful plane in the back ground, P51B or C not the D, Like it!

Well picked, Bit sloppy on the first look, I am just so use to seeing C & D that I got carried away! Still an A is still nice to see in pic's these days.

Just finished watching Red Tails. It's cool seeing the planes, but it's a bit cheesy... And they're flying P51Ds instead of the P51C. And the ME262 was over-the-top aerobatic.

For the real story, check out the History Channel's 'Dogfights' series.

Oh and beautiful airplane, snazzy car and totally crap movie. Tuskegee airman was a much better movie but much like Pearl Harbor, just wasn't current Hollywood enough.

I really can't wait till they remake Hells Angels. Can you imagine whole squadrons of WWI aircraft. No wait, no they'd animate them like they did in Flyboys and then EVERY Focker Triplane, which would outnumber every other plane in the air, would be painted in the Red Baron's colors.

Maybe, if we're lucky, they're will be an earthquake and Hollywood will vanish leaving other places to make movies. Best movie I've seen recently was a Korean western called 'The Good, The Bad and the Weird'

But none of that detracts from a snazzy looking car and a good looking P-51, even if it is the wrong model. On the wiki site, it shows the Commemorative airforces P-51 which is the one pictured in this thread, it's a C.

No no, the one in the picture is a C. The ones in the movie are incorrect. It really was a stinker movie... One of the few aviation movies that I really like is Flight of the Intruders. It has much more of a sense of reality to it, even with the late 80s-early 90s, er, flair mixed in. And love the phantom s**tter!
