I updated my collection of pictures of the P-51 Mustang relating to 122 (NEI) Squadron Medan. Many thanks to P.Guit and P.Wolf

P-51D

The definitive version, the P-51D, was powered by the Packard V-1650-7, a license-built version of the Rolls-Royce Merlin 66 two-stage two-speed supercharged engine.
The engine sound’s like this.. or try 14 P-51 Mustangs Simultaneous Engine Run and Takeoffs.

They were operated by 121 (Tjililitan, Batavia) and 122 Squadrons (Polonia, Medan)[1] of the KNIL Army Air Corps (KNIL-ML).

When the war against Japan ended[2], the Dutch Mustangs were used in a futile attempt to suppress the Indonesian nationalists.

1. The 122 Squadron was officially established on November 1, 1946 and added to lucosu. In the same decision, Captain A.G. Deibel appointed commander of the squadron. On 12 November 1946 he personally led the flight of the first twelve P-51s, under the guidance of a B-25, from Tjililitan to Medan, a distance of 1390 km. In the B-25, a team from the technical service was under the command of adjutant non-commissioned officer C.W. Bastian. - Source: page 181; The Military Aviation of the KNIL 1945-1950 by Otto Ward

Music is important. What i like varies. Per day. Week. Hour. Some last a lifetime.

I definitly live outside their demografic and don’t see myself as an active ARMY member anytime soon. But I like it.

Both South-Korean supergroups are on world tour. Playing in sold out venues. Unbelievable. Well done.

Ofcourse i have been a big fan of 'Babymetal' from Japan for years. WagakkiBand is a recent discovery.

Formed in 2010, BABYMETAL is made up of three teenagers, SU-METAL, YUIMETAL, and MOAMETAL.

With their combination of powerful metal sound and dance performances, they are by far the most unique band out there.

But a lot has happened since the beginning starting 2018.

Spotify

Fusing Japanese traditions with a modern spin, Tokyo-based Wagakki Band blend elements of J-pop, folk-rock, metal, and ancient instrumentation with vocals influenced by Japanese poetry and theater.

Much of my contemporary music i get from youtube. I watch it dayly on a raspberry pi with Libreelec in the livingroom. Some of my happy-channels:
