On December 1, 1943 the P-51B Mustang flew its first combat mission and in March 1944 provided bomber escort to Berlin. The high shape of the P-51B/C dorsal spine gave it the name “Razorback”. P-51B Mustang 43-24283 c/n 102-24700 originally was assigned to Bud Anderson and later assigned to Lt. Bill Overstreet also from the 357th FG. Overstreet had the new name “Berlin Express” painted on the left side of the engine cowling and a winged Mustang on the right side. One thing Bill was known for was flying aircraft under famous structures. Most famously, he pursued and shot down a Bf 109G under the Eiffel Tower in 1944, before escaping the flak by flying full throttle along the Seine river.
