    Lol I didn't notice either. I was too focused on the cool planes!

    It's the Mustang for me! I've always loved the way they look and sound!

    Actually, if it makes you feel better, you're partially right.
    I would guess that the mustang would have the advantage in most performance categories due due to a lighter airframe.
    All carrier based aircraft are inherently heavier to handle the stress of short take offs and landings.

    My vote was for the P-51 Mustang because I like the way they sound.

    Between the two the Mustang wins my vote hands down its a pilots airplane. There is however a reason Dick Bong had more kills in WWII than any other pilot and it's not just because the P-38 looks fast on the ground.

    I love the P-38, but I understand because it was primarily built for the warmer Pacific theatre it didn't have a cockpit heater when introduced in Europe. My 1948 CJ-2A didn't either. Brrrrrhh!!

    I'd have to say P-51 for sure.

    Corsair F4U. Watch that fly on "Baa Baa Black Sheep" every week growing up. Even had a model air plane of a Corsair F4U.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
