Topic: One was fantastic, two would be ...?


Developed shortly after World War II, the Twin Mustang was not involved in the conflict, however, as it would have been his performance against the German fighters? The P-82 had anticipated the end of the war? What do you think? The link below provides an interesting report about these questions and an extensive collection of photographs, some rare and unreleased for me. To see the full report and the photos visit the link below:

I think it was always going to be an evolutionary dead end once the jet took off.

In 1944 the USAAF sent a memo to its Air Force Commanders to see if they would object to cancelling the P-38/39/40. Gen. George Kenney, Commander of the 5th A.F. in the South West Pacific Theatre, said it was OK to cancel the P-39 and 40, but the P-38 was essential for his operations covering vast ocean distances, dense jungle and vicious Japanese. He said he wouldn't object cancelling the P-38 provided the replacement had 2 engines, could fly any distance on one and asked for increases in top speed & range. The Twin Mustang was the result.
