    Possibly the pinnicle of 40's era Australian fighter design.
    CAC-15

    Looks like a P-51 on steroids but was a completely new design.
    A 700+ KPH RR Griffon powered fighter it first flew in 1946.
    Only one was ever constructed as the jet was the future.

    Cheers

    That's a cool looking aircraft!......
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Great ads there, Kenworth. I love the 40s graphics. I've not got much Oz stuff, being in old South Wales. A couple of Australians were killed training on Spits nearby and I've recovered a few fragments. Brave men a long way from home, facing weather worse than the Nazis.
    I got this spare from an Australian Beaufort restoration, another 'make the best of it' aircraft.

    Around 200 were made by CAC from June 1945 until Aug 1951. Designated CA-17 and CA-18.
    These airframes were RAAF numbered A68-1 to A68-200.
    CA-17'S were built from US supplied kits whilst CA-18's were CAC builds.

    299 were supplied to the RAAF by North American from 1944 until Sep 1945 when Australian manufacture took over. These airframes were A68-1001 P-51D, A68-500-583 P-51K and A68-600-813 again P-51D's.

    Cheers
