The P.149D was originally conceived as a military trainer during the 1950s and was predominantly in service with the German and Italian air forces. In our opinion it looks very similar in wing and tail to the (in)famous P-51 Mustang, but with 4 seats on the interior, the entire family can enjoy the fun!
We were very fortunate to get the opportunity to record this aircraft. Star of the show for this field recording was D-EHVO, a beautifully restored example featuring the legendary "Black Tulip" livery. The 6-cylinder Lycoming GO-480 in this aircraft had been fitted with a completely free flowing exhaust system making some excellent noise. See the pictures below for a quick impression of the proceedings that day. This also was the first time we brought our RØDE NT-SF1 microphone along which was used to create ambisonic recordings of the interior engine sound.
