Did you know?
This design is inspired by the P-51B of Major James Howard. James Howell Howard (April 8, 1913 – March 18, 1995) was the only fighter pilot in the European Theater of Operations in World War II to receive the Medal of Honor. Howard had the rare distinction of being an ace in two operational theaters during World War II, with over 6 aerial victories with the Flying Tigers of the American Volunteer Group (AVG) in the Pacific and 6 aerial victories over Europe with the United States Air Force.

On January 11, 1944, Howard flew his P-51 unaccompanied into some 30 Luftwaffe fighters that were attacking a formation of American B-17 Flying Fortress bombers over Oschersleben, Germany. For more than a half-hour, Howard defended the heavy bombers of the 401st Bomb Group against the swarm of Luftwaffe fighters, repeatedly attacking the enemy and shooting down as many as six. Even after Howard's P-51 ran out of ammunition, he continued to dive on enemy airplanes. The leader of the bomber formation later reported, "For sheer determination and guts, it was the greatest exhibition I've ever seen. It was a case of one lone American against what seemed to be the entire Luftwaffe. He was all over the wing, across and around it. They can't give that boy a big enough award."

He ended his career with a Medal of Honor, Distinguished Flying Cross (x2), Bronze Star and Air Medal (x10).
