Never knew Germans had used P51's also back then, never thought they would as there fighters of the time were pretty killer birds!. Yes very different then what we see all the times at the field, this model has become very different and unique at the same time...

Re: Captured PZ-51

Both sides captured aircraft, a lot of German aircraft got disoriented in bad weather, and landed in the UK, thinking they were on home turf, and vice versa. Forced landings occured as well, both to mechanical failures, and damage. The British were fortunate enough to have German pilots land each of the new versions of FW 190, intact. They were used for test and evaluation, as well as adversarial training for aircrew.

I don't know of any attempts by either side to use captured aircraft in combat against their former owners, however the Russians might well have. Captured tanks, artillery, etc were often used on the eastern front.
