Aircraft Flown at Scott

P-51 Mustang, 1952-53: The new fighter incorporated many of the latest developments in aeronautics, notably the laminar flow wing that was relatively symmetrical and offered less drag at high speed. While the Korean War is thought of as a jet war, the Mustang played a key role in ground attack. P-51s flew over 60,000 missions in the Korean War, and were credited with destroying 12 enemy aircraft.
