….historic moments of the F-82 Twin Mustang

"To many fans of World War II aviation, there is nothing greater than the North American P-51 Mustang, the silvery, iconic warbird that dominated the air in every theatre it flew in.

But what could be better than a P-51 Mustang? Well, at least according to one North American designer, the only thing better would be two P-51 Mustangs fused together.

While strange-looking, the F-82 Twin Mustang was quite the aircraft, and a fantastic all-weather day/night fighter for its time…."

Definitely one of the stranger production planes in WW2!

The F-82F and -G night fighters are even odder-looking, with a large pod under the center section that extends forward of the props.
