This photo is part of the FSA/OWI Collection (Farm Security Administration-Office of War Information) in the 'American Memory' section of the Library of Congress website. The original TIF image can be found HERE...


The aircraft depicted is a North American P-51 Mustang. The P-51s (no suffix) were Lend-Lease Mustang IAs originally destined for the British Royal Air Force, but held back for use by the Army Air Corps after the USA entered the war.
