I suspect that’s a photo shop??

 

 

It's most definitely real.  Half a million people who were at Oshkosh last summer will vouch.  And there's an E model Twin Mustang up in Minnesota also being restored to airworthiness.

Wow great shots, I wonder how many are left? There were so few made, 272, pilots would sure have to get along, 

This way, no, this way, no this way.

There were quite a few made, they were used extensively in combat during the Korean war.  This is the one and only XP-82, there is the one other production variant under restoration, and 2-3 in museums.   Here's a link to the XP-82 project.

Wow, thanks, unbelievable what some minds and hands can do, I saw a B17 one time and the work that went into it blew me away, on top of that fact is what guys took in after battle and repaired it for the next time around, there are probably a lot more but the memphis belle story gives a real read into lives of the men that flew these missions.
