The P-51 Mustang was first manufactured as a result of a RAF request in 1940 for a fast, heavily armed fighter able to operate at altitudes of more than 20,000 feet. The P-51D was the most widely produced variant of the Mustang family, and one of the photo reconnaissance versions was designated the F-6D. A total of 126 P-51D Mustangs built at the North American Inglewood plant in California USA were converted to this F-6D version. They carried two cameras in the rear of the fuselage, generally a K17 and a K22. One camera was aimed almost horizontally to the left while the other was directed downwards at an oblique angle. These specially equipped aircraft were used to gain vital aerial intelligence over enemy-held territory during World War II.
