This is a Cavalier Mustang of the Indonesian AF (TNI-AU) displayed in a Museum, possibly in Jakarta, marked F-338. It might be impossible to determine the exact ID of this Mustang, since ID's of Indonesian Mustangs are very 'fishy' in some cases.nnThe original F-338 was P-51D-25-NT 44-84801, former NEIAF (Netherlands East Indies Air Force) N3-638, coded H-338, delivered on October 24, 1945, serving with No. 121 Sqdn. and transferred to the new AURI (Indonesian AF) in 1949, when Indonesia received independent status. Since the a/c shown here clearly is a Cavalier conversion; the original a/c either went through this programme, or it is another a/c delivered sometime later and presented here in fake-markings.

This Mustang pictures was taken at "Dirgantara Mandala" Museum in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. The "Dirgantara Mandala" is Indonesian Air Force museum which mostly Indonesian AF's aircrafts are well preserved. nRegards, Alex Sidharta, Indonesia
