Has anyone noticed that this gal doesn't have a mirror but the c version does?
Anyone fly the B or C series P-51's? I love this plane. The visibility is terrible in the rear. would be cool if they added a rear view for the bubble canopy that would make the pilot look back and a bit to the side.

also notice how the old spits have rectangular mirrors, and the new ones have circular mirrors?

the P-51D also does not have mirrors. If you fly like I do those mirrors come in real handy keeping an eye on the guy that is always getting on my 6. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

i found a way to improve rearward visibility in most plaes ALOT but i dunno if its well known or not

shift F1 then look beind, you get a much greater view in most planes
