Uruguayan Mustangs

In 1950, 25 F-51D Mustangs were sold by the US to the Fuerza Aérea Uruguayana and were used to form the Grupo de Aviacion N°2. They were used as fighter-bombers until 1960, when they were replaced by F-80C, the surviving aircraft being sold to Bolivia for a dollar apiece.


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