Hundreds of Mustangs were acquired by the Chinese Nationalist Air Force (CNAF) from the allied forces after World War 2. These aircraft were used in many actions against the Red (Communist) Chinese Forces, and many were captured by the Red Chinese Air Force – the People’s Liberation Army Air Force (PLAAF).
These Mustangs were hastily repainted to cover original CNAF paintwork, as well as to cover damage and wear. The aircraft were also remarked with the Red Star insignia. Since parts for the US made Mustangs were unavailable, most of these aircraft were never reflown.
Two such examples of captured Mustangs are on display in Air Museums in China.
This model represents one of those display aircraft (at the Military Museum of Chinese people’s Revolution, in Beijing)
