Joe 'Lightning' Little:
Nothing's difficult. Everything's a challenge. Through adversity to the stars. From the last plane to the last bullet to the last minute to the last man - we fight. WE fight! We FIGHT!
When the Tuskegee Airmen perform their first mission in P-51 Mustangs, several of the planes are heard starting with the trademark inertia starter squeal of a radial piston engine. However, the P-51 always used a water cooled V12 engine (both early Allison and later Rolls) which have a conventional starter and turn over with a noise similar to any modern piston aircraft engine.
