Later in WWII the Allied bombers were flying deep into Germany but suffered tremendous losses 
because of the lack of range the fighter escorts had. German fighters would wait beyond the 
range of the Allied fighters and then attack the vulnerable bombers. Once the P-51 called 
Mustang by the British had the Allison engine replaced with a British Merlin it possessed the high 
performance that had been lacking. With drop tanks the P-51 had the range to escort bombers all 
the way to Berlin and back.

P-51D HO/W (44-14237) “Moonbeam McSwine” was the aircraft flown by Capt. William Whisner. 
In late September 1944 Whisner returned to England to start his second tour of combat and soon 
was promoted to Captain. On November 21, 1944 Capt. Whisner was credited with five 
confirmed and 2 probable air-to-to-air victories. Whisner became an ace in Korea as well as 
WWII and received the DSC three times. Capt. Whisner’s WWII total was 15.5 victories and 5 in 
Korea. He survived 2 wars only to die in 1989 from a Yellow Jacket sting.
