WWII Plane Among Airplanes in Maine Air Show

By  | 

Brunswick, Maine (WMTW) Among the dozens of airplanes in Brunswick this week for the Great State of Maine Air Show was the P-51 Mustang.

Built in 1945, it was meant to be the mainstay fighter of the Army Corps, now known as the U.S. Air Force.

Its main job was to escort bombers in Europe to Berlin and back, so they had total fighter coverage for the entire route.

"This airplane was their go-to high altitude air superiority fighter. It's meant to shoot down and give bomber coverage to those flying." Says pilot Scott Yoak.

The air show wrapped up Sunday.
