Later in WWII the Allied bombers were flying deep into Germany but suffered tremendous losses because of the lack of range the fighter escorts had. German fighters would wait beyond the range of the Allied fighters and then attack the vulnerable bombers. Once the P-51, called Mustang by the British, had the Allison engine replaced with a British Merlin it possessed the high performance that had been lacking. With drop tanks the P-51 had the range to escort bombers all the way to Berlin and back.

Twenty one victories made John Voll the third highest scoring Mustang pilot of WW II and the highest scoring USAAF pilot of the 15th AF. One month after joining the 308th FS/31st FG he scored his first victory on June 23, 1944. John Voll scored all his victories flying P-51s that he named American Beauty, six of his victories flying P-51Bs. Lovely Lila was the crew chief�s doing. On November 16, 1944 twelve fighters attacked John while he was downing a Ju-52. Voll destroyed two Fw-190s, one Bf-109 and damaged several others.
