I was busting up some concrete with a chipping hammer with an iPhone in my shirt pocket playing Led Zeppelin as loud as it could...and...that Merlin. Damn. That Merlin. It was at low altitude banking in a turn, showing me its belly, so I got a great view of that unmistakable wing profile. Wow. What a thrill. I would seriously consider buying a ride in one of those. I'm trying to find out exactly which Mustang it was.

There is a P51 replica sold in the US that is aluminum and a P51 replica sold in the EU that is Carbon Fiber. The carbon fiber plane sells for $100,000.
