P-51B or P-51C, 540th Fighter Squadron

Here we see a P-51B or P-51C (identical apart from the manufacturer), probably from the 540th Fighter Squadron, 339th Fighter Group, 66th Fighter Wing, 3rd Air Division, 8th Air Force. Although the entire squadron code isn't entirely clear, it is probably 5Q, the only P-51 squadron code that fits the visible fragments.
