Rare Australian Mustangs brought together at Tyabb

The two Commonwealth Aircraft Corporation (CAC) CA-18 Mustangs based at Tyabb in Victoria, Australia, were brought together for the first time on November 26.

The two fighters, both among the 200 built by CAC in Melbourne, were positioned together at an open day to promote the venue’s War & Peace Air Show on March 11, 2018. Mustang A68-105, painted in a camouflage livery, and the silver-schemed A68-199, both served with the Royal Australian Air Force. The latter is believed to be the world’s ‘youngest’ flying Mustang – it was delivered to the RAAF on July 12, 1951. For more information on the airshow see: www.tyabbairshow.com
