Continuing the aviation theme, this advert appeared in Look magazine, 25 August 1944, one of a number in this publication to promote US industry in wartime guise. The P-51 Mustang had been in combat since 1942, their success seeing them in use with the USAF until the mid-1950s, and elsewhere until the 1980s. Of over 15,000 built, some 200 remain airworthy in the USA today.
About Vintage Stuff
The aim of Vintage Stuff is to display some of the ephemera that I have collected, often inadvertently, over the years. I am now deliberately seeking out interesting old adverts, screen shots, leaflets, obscure record covers, picture postcards and illustrations; anything that catches my eye, in fact. They will be mainly, but not exclusively of UK origin (so many vintage blogs appear to be American) and almost always a scan from something that I actually have in my collection, rather than off the net. If you do re-blog, please acknowledge the source. Further stuff, mainly photographs, can be found on my Flickr pages, via the Benny Hill record cover.
