One Was Fantastic, Two Would Be ...?

Developed shortly after World War II, the Twin Mustang was not involved in the conflict, however, as it would have been his performance against the German fighters? The P-82 had anticipated the end of the war? What do you think? The link below provides an interesting report about these questions and an extensive collection of photographs, some rare and unreleased for me.

It was developed to increase the already amazing range of the P51 Mustang. The top Brass wanted a massively increased range so designers came up with the twin fuselage design that resulted in more fuel capacity (some was stored in the middle joining section of the wing), it could also have drop tanks.
It was a superb aircraft however it was soon fazed out in favour of jet powered aircraft.

To answer your question the dual fuselage construction was a very stable platform. The aircraft could be flown by either pilot as it had a dual control set up.
Alright, thank you. I thought that the dual fuselage would be anything but stable. I was wrong about that o_O
The Twin Mustang was not the only aircraft of this design.
The P38 Lightning was a very successful model

The twin fuselage concept continued into the Jet era

Dehaviland Vampire

@Admin A twin-fuselage aircraft has two main fuselages. It is distinct from the twin-boom aircraft configuration which has a main body with two subsidiary boom structures therefore the Vampire is not strictly a twin fuselage aircraft. @Bombardier You are right though that the 'twin Fuselage' configuration was a stable platform.
