The life of Australian Mustangs after military use is thoroughly documented giving the readers an insight into the various people who have saved the aircraft from the scrappers and kept the Mustang still flying today.
An extensive appendix gives construction details and technical data of the Mustang, a history of the RAAF and CAF units who flew the Mustang and a full fleet listing of all North American and CAC Mustangs that flew in the RAAF plus an extensive chronology of the aircraft.
The book is lavishly illustrated with over 500 black and white and colour photos, some of which have never been published before. Specially commissioned colour profiles by Graeme Molineux supplement the text showing the various colour schemes worn by the Australian Mustangs in both military and civilian use.
The ’Stang! is a must for any Mustang enthusiast with an interest in its service with the RAAF and its civilian use in Australia and overseas. This book makes an excellent companion to Southern Cross Mustangs as it covers the extensive history of the type in Australian service.
The 'Stang is published by Red Roo Models and is available from the Red Roo Models webshop.
