undated USAAF photo, 1945

This P-51 Mustang of the pioneer Mustang Group was the first plane of the U.S. Army Air Force to be serviced east of the Rhine. The field was a former German airdrome located in the vicinity of Frankfurt. While her ground crew tends to her, other airmen look over the remains of a Nazi plane.
