Mustang P-51 & ScaleWings 70% replica / 2022 06 24 /

P-51 Mustang is an American long-range, single-seat fighter and fighter-bomber used during World War II and the Korean War, among other conflicts. The Mustang was designed in April 1940 by a team headed by James Kindelberger of North American Aviation (NAA) in response to a requirement of the British Purchasing Commission.

The prototype NA-73X airframe was rolled out on 9 September 1940, 102 days after the contract was signed, and first flew on 26 October. The cost of production in 1945 was 50 000 dollars.
A total of 15,875 aircraft were produced.
The majority of P-51's remained in the Air Force for a long time, although from 1946 they were gradually replaced by jet fighters. The obsolete P-51 could be bought very cheaply ($1000), so it was also used extensively for personal use. The P-51C won many victories in various air races. It is still used in many places for recreational purposes, but its price has risen to two million dollars.

YAK aircraft & RED A03 V-12 Diesel

On March 9, 2009 "Termikas" has signed an agreement with the German company "RED aircraft GmbH" ( Raikhlin engines development ) to modify the Yak-52 aircraft by replacing the standard engine M-14P ( 360HP ) with a new RED A03 V-12 Diesel ( 500 hp ) engine and to additionally install hydraulic and electrical systems.
We performed fuselage and aircraft systems modifications. Company "RED" installed its diesel engine and assembled engine control and monitoring equipment.
With the participation of specialists from both companies, the aircraft was finally assembled and tested in Adenau, Germany. Test pilot - Antanas Marčiukaitis.
In 2010, the aircraft was presented at the largest European aviation exhibition in Friedrichshafen.

Today we present the 4-seater Yak-18T aircraft. "Termikas" and the project engineer Jonas Janušauskas modified and prepared the aircraft for the installation of the RED A03 V-12 Diesel (500 hp) engine. The engine was installed at the company's "RED" base in Adenau, Germany. Test flights were conducted there. At the end of July, the aircraft was registered in the Lithuanian register LY-BID and flew to our airfield. Test pilot – Žilvinas Lidžius.

"Termikas" will now do some work on modifications, testing and aircraft appearance.

We are looking forward to the visit of "RED" representatives soon.
Together with colleagues from "RED", we will tell you more about this project later on.
