Twin Mustang

Thu Jun 14, 2001 3:43 pm

The F/P-82 Twin Mustang was an oddity the joining of two airframes to produce a new aircraft.

Was the Twin Mustang a successful marriage, used in Korea but how effective was it.

Besides the Twin Mustang and the HE111Z was their any other operational aircraft where two airframes where joined to create a new aircraft.

The Twin Mustang is really a misnomer because in the case of that aircraft a entirely new airframe was created. I am not even real sure there where any interchangable parts between the two.

The Germans also where designing a twin of the ME-109. Although that aircraft only had one cockpit in the lefthand "Boom"

The Twin Mustang was quite successful as a nightfighter until replaced by faster aircraft. I believe the first kill of the Korean war was by a Twin Mustang.
I wish I were flying
