    Thanks to everybody who has supplied extra information about this incident. Below are a few more pictures of items from Slanker's P-51 : Firstly are a couple of views of the spent ammunition ejection ports from the underside of the wings .... The next picture shows part of the runner on which the canopy slid ... Lastly there is something that I'm sure that Steve will recognise ... an exhaust stub.

    Nice !

    I love the exhaust stub Excellent quality steel with really good corrosion resistance It looks like it has had some welding done to it 'in the field'.

    AND....don't forget I found a MG belt ejector port from a P51 We could marry the two up !

    The engine used in the P-51 Mustang was a Packard V-1650-7, a license-built copy of the British Merlin 66, so it makes sense.
