The only difference between the North American P-51B and C variants was the B was built in Inglewood and the C in Dallas. The B variant first flew on May 5, 1943 and the C variant first flew on August 5, 1943. The B variant saw 1,988 built while the C variant saw 1,750 built. On December 1, 1943 the P-51B Mustang flew its first combat mission and in March 1944 provided bomber escort to Berlin. The high shape of the P-51B/C dorsal spine gave it the name ˘Razorback÷.

P-51B Mustang 43-24283 c/n 102-24700 originally was assigned to Bud Anderson as ˘old Crow÷. When Bud moved on the aircraft was assigned to Lt. Bill Overstreet also from the 357th FG. Overstreet had the new name ˘Berlin Express÷ painted on the left side of the engine cowling and a winged Mustang on the right side. One thing Bill was known for was flying aircraft under special structures. He once flew under the Golden Gate Bridge and most famously pursuing a German aircraft under the Eiffel Tower and shooting it down.
