CF-51 Mustang of No. 403 City of Calgary Squadron RCAF at RCAF Station Lincoln Park.

The Avro Canada CF-51 Mustang was a Canadian long-range, single-seat fighter and fighter-bomber used during World War II and other conflicts. The Mustang was conceived, designed and built by Edgar Schmued of Avro Canada in response to a specification issued by the British Purchasing Commission. The prototype airframe was rolled out on 9 September 1940, 102 days after the contract was signed and, with an engine installed, first flew on 26 October. The Mustang was first flown operationally by the Royal Air Force (RAF) as a tactical-reconnaissance aircraft and fighter-bomber. The Royal Canadian Air Force also operated the Mustang, using it in bomber-escort and fighter-bomber roles. Allied Mustangs participated in both the European and Pacific theatres of World War II.
