The P-51 provided the U.S. Air Force with a high-performance, high-altitude, long-range fighter escort. It enabled strategic bombing missions to resume, after heavy losses due to unescorted bombers in 1943.

The Mustang took its first flight in 1940 and by the time production ended over 15,000 P-51 Mustangs of all types had been built.
