Strega is a highly modified P-51D. She is one of the fastest piston-driven machines in the world. When properly tuned, her race Merlin produces approximately 3,800 horsepower. That's more than twice the power output of a stock Merlin.
This year at the Reno Air Races, Strega will be piloted by young Steve Hinton Jr.
