F-51D
Unit: Escuadrilla 1, Escuadron Caza Bombardeo
Serial: unknown

FAS P-51D as seen in a crudely applied disruptive camouflage pattern - which obviously obscured all the markings and serials - during the war. It is very likely that the aircraft was originally painted like the '402', but the colours faded after years, only to be - partially - 'refreshed' when the aircraft was brought back to operational condition. Mustangs of the Fuerza Aerea Salvadorena were foremost used for air-to-ground attacks in war 1968, but they - as well as few FAS P-51 Cavalier Mustangs - took part in some air combats as well.

F-51D (P-51D-25-NA)
Unit: Escuadrilla 1, Escuadron Caza Bombardeo, Fuerza Aerea Salvadorena
Serial: FAS-402 (44-73273/YS-210P)

402 was the P-51s privately owned by Archie Baldacchi and rushed into FAS service. This Mustang survived the war, only to be heavily camouflaged afterwards. Originally painted grey overall and registered YS-210P; wore no fuselage roundel; black strip on the fin, outlined in yellow - came from the civilian scheme; the aircraft was later camouflaged, and re-camouflaged again when the original colours faded before being sold to the USA, in 1974.

The US refusal to supply more modern aircraft to Latin-American countries could not prevent El Salvador and Honduras from fighting a war with available assets. Consequently, at the time the high-tech-equipped US and Israeli forces were fighting MiGs and SAMs over Vietnam and in the Middle East, respectively, and using guided missiles and ECM-pods, while the whole NATO was equipped with Mach-2 fighters like Lockheed F-104 Starfighter, the pilots from El Salvador and Honduras had to make do with 20 and more years old piston-engined fighters, several of which were taken from warbird collectors! This P-51D, serialled 402 in FAS service, was one of such aircraft.

F-51D
Unit: Escuadrilla 1, Escuadron Caza Bombardeo
Serial: FAS-407

The background of the FAS P-51D '407' is not entirely clear: it should have been a 'stock'-Mustang. According to some sources, it was the first 'new' P-51D acquired form civilian sources in the USA to arrive in El Salvador during the war. According to other, it was shot down on 18 July 1969, apparently by Honduran AAA. Note: version of SEA camouflage.

Serial: FAS-408

408 was one of the P-51s acquired by El Salvador after the actual fighting with Honduras: the tensions remained high immediately after the war, namely, and both sides scrambled to acquire additional fighters, regardless the cost.

Unit: Escuadrilla 1, Escuadron Caza Bombardeo

This P-51D, serialled 411 in FAS service, was one of Mustangs that started arriving in El Salvador from 17 July - and had first to be 'militarized' in order to enter service with FAS.

F-51K Cavalier Mustang II
Unit: Escuadrilla 1, Escuadron Caza Bombardeo
Serial: FAS-403

At the start of the war with Honduras, the FAS operated also four P-51K Mustang Cavaliers, serialled 401, 403, 404, and 405. At least 403 was painted in colours used by the USAF in SEA, but it seems that there was no standardized pattern.
