P51 Mustang Maintenance Manual

Over the years I have found many aircraft parts in airbase dump sites. Having a manual handy to track down exactly where the parts are from is always extremely useful. Part codes and manufacturer inspection stamps are all well and good, but sometimes it is nice to know exactly where a part fits in an aircraft, rather than just knowing which aircraft it has come from. This short series of blogs highlights 3 such aircraft.

Hopefully these manuals will aid in the identification of aircraft parts of my fellow collectors.

This short series of blogs will begin with the P51 Mustang……
