This is an interesting book for the hard core war bird fans of the P51 Mustang. While the photos of the Mustang survivors circa 2003 are fantastic, the really interesting part of the book is not the nut and bolt listing of tail codes and owners of the currently owned P51's. The other part of the book addresses Mustang restoration and ownership in the modern era, with interviews and quotes of the men and women involved.

This book does not address the history of the development of the Mustang or the P51 in combat. There are plenty of other books out there that address that part of the story.

Great pictures with great reference to the surviving Mustangs.

Mustang enthusiasts will be in seventh heaven when they see this book! A 2003 update of a book originally published in 1987, MUSTANG SURVIVORS is a sumptuous 174-page guide to P-51 airframes worldwide, flyable and otherwise. Brimming with photographs and fascinating facts on North American's legendary warbird, author Paul Coggan's book is a five-star tribute worthy of its subject.

The meat of the book is a 100-page breakdown of Mustangs around the world, arranged by model designation (XP-51, A-36, P-51B, etc.). Coggan supplies the aircraft's serial number, owner, status (flyable, display, etc.) and a short history of the plane. Many of the aircraft are illustrated with one or more photographs, usually in color. There have to be 300+ photos in the book. Some of the shots, especially the air-to-air pix, are drop-dead gorgeous.

In addition to that 'Mustang log,' there's also chapters on where all those airframes came from, the Mustang restoration business, P-51 powerplants, Mustang markings (with lots of nose art closeups), fascinating comments from Mustang owners and pilots, etc.

If Mustangs are your main squeeze, you'll want this book. The photos alone are worth the $36.95 price tag. Highly recommended.
