Took me a sec to determine if I was looking at the top, or the bottom.

This C-130 was built (modified) to land and take off with a full load of hostages on a 600 ft soccer field in Iran. The hostages were released before it was ready.
TURN THE SOUND DOWN.

RAF Mustang MK 1A at the Inglewood, California plant of North American Aviation.
Wood wheels were used during manufacturing until it was ready for flight tests.

I have a vague recollection of a project to re-engine and refurbish Mustang aircraft with the view to selling them to the air forces of developing nations.
That would have been about 1970 (giving my age away) and I have a feeling that nothing came of it beyond a couple of test examples.
It was an American firm behind the project but I can't recall the name or much else!

I had a similar memory specifically of Central America.

https://www.airspacemag.com/history-...hts-180956250/

The last dogfights between piston-engine, propeller-driven airplanes weren’t fought in the skies over Germany in the 1940s or even Korea in the 1950s. They occurred in Central America in 1969, and all of the combatants were flying U.S.-built Corsairs and Mustangs.

The dogfights were among the final acts in a brief but bloody four-day conflict between Honduras and El Salvador, commonly (but misleadingly) known as the Football War. Although a pair of soccer games between the two nations sparked the initial riots, the war was the culmination of longstanding tension over immigration and land reform.

Thanks for that link, Griff!
It led me to the Cavalier Mustang which is the name I couldn't recall.

Quote:
The Cavalier Mustang was a post-World War II civilian-modified version of the North American P-51 Mustang aircraft.
Although originally intended as a high speed personal aircraft, the Cavalier was also exported for use as a fighter and close air support aircraft to third world air forces.
Much more on the military versions in this Wiki article:
