Costarican Mustangs

In 1955, Costa Rica bought four F-51D from the Texas Air National Guard for the symbolic sum of one dollar an aircraft. These aircraft, one of which crashed during ferrying, were not used much by the Fuerza Aérea Costaricense, which sold the two surviving aircraft in March 1964.


Can you help us write this article ? We are looking for any data concerning the P-51 in Costarican service : articles, photographs, records, etc. Thanks for your help.
