North American A-36 Apache/Invader - The North American A-36 Apache was the ground-attack/dive bomber version of the North American P-51 Mustang, from which it could be distinguished by the presence of rectangular, slatted dive brakes above and below the wings. A total of 500 A-36 dive bombers served in North Africa, the Mediterranean, Italy and the China-Burma-India theater during World War II before being withdrawn from operational use in 1944.

A-36 Apache in nose dive with dive brakes deployed.  This is a derivative of the P-51 Mustang.

The Apache dove at speeds approaching 500 mph, and during one test, an airplane lost its wings during a dive.

Not sure what model this Mustang is, doesn't have cheek guns so not A-36 or Mark I, doesn't have 20mm so not P-51-1NA or F-6 or Mk IA. Leaves the later P-51A which was produced after the A-36.
