That young upstart Thomas H Mapother has a P-51 to "Cruise" around in.

From the pilot notes. Some WWII reports say the spin was what saved a few lads in combat when when the opposition was on their tail, in a tight turn the -51 had a propensity to flick into a spin if you overdid it, a bit hard for the opposition to follow.
