Yes they do inderdaad still fly the Harrier. And the F-35B is already operational with a few units...

Inderdaad, I kind of like that term. I might just use that in the future. :)

It might say there was 800 fighters escorting the bombers but those 800 were not all Mustangs and those 800 didn't escort the bombers at one time.

 

The initial escort was done by P-47s (and Spitfires). The P-51s and P-38s took over the escort around the western German border for the run to the target and the return to the German border where P-47s (and Spitfires) took back the escort duty.

 

Example

 

WEDNESDAY, 29 NOVEMBER 1944

STRATEGIC OPERATIONS (Eighth Air Force): 2 missions are flown. Mission 729: 1,077 bombers and 946 fighters are dispatched to make PFF attacks on viaduct rail targets and oil refineries in Germany; 1 bomber is lost:

 

1. 445 B-17s are sent to hit the oil refinery at Misburg (391); targets of opportunity are Osnabrcuk (36) and others (5); 6 B-17s are damaged. Escorting are 419 P-47s and P-51s without loss.

2. 307 B-24s are sent to hit the Schildesche rail viaduct at Bielefeld (152) and the Altenbeken rail viaduct (144); 2 others hit targets of opportunity; 1 B-24 is lost and 9 damaged; 10 airmen are MIA. Escorting are 261 P-47s and P-51s without loss.

3. 312 B-17s are sent to hit the Hamm marshalling yard (294); 4 others hit targets of opportunity; 1 B-17 is damaged beyond repair and 87 damaged; 3 airmen are WIA. Escorting are 112 of 120 P-51s without loss.
