When people think of warbirds, their minds eye usually turns to the most famous WWII pursuit fighter of them all-The North American P-51 Mustang. The P-51 was one of the airplanes most responsible for winning the war. With its enormous fuel capacity, high-speed, and agile maneuverability, the P-51 was able to protect bombers from predatory Luftwaffe fighters all the way to targets over Germany and back to England again. P-51s can still be seen in the air; they are a mainstay of the air race circuit where the roar of their V-12 Merlin engines thrills any airplane nut within earshot.
This AAC design pays homage to legendary P-51. On the front of this t-shirt, the Mustang is represented in air race livery, proudly wearing the Aeroplane Apparel Company logo against a backdrop of red and black. On the back of the shirt, the full-color P-51 stalks the flight line from overhead, as if tempting the airplanes on the ground to come up for an old-fashioned tangle. The entire scene is framed in gunmetal grey scrollwork and is capped off by the vintage AAC logo.
