Besides the fact that the P-51 Mustang was undeniably the best prop powered fighter plane ever,............................
That is exactly why this thread is a poll, and why some (inluding myself) consider it over-rated.
While is cannot be denied that it was a great fighter, many of us do not consider it to be a better combat fighter than many other fighters of the era, performance wise and survivability wise. As stated earlier, it had one advantage over most other fighters: range. Also, it was more economical (more mpg, cheaper to produce than P-47).
Therefor, it IS deniable.
But, the Mustang is prettier.
