This page contains links to airplane types, company-oriented articles and other information about North American Aviation (NAA).
A relatively autonomous holding of General Motors, NAA was a relatively small, but important, player in US WWII aviation. Small in that they were only 11th in contract value, important in that three of their planes AT-6 Texan (also Harvard), B-25 Mitchell, P-51 Mustang were major players in the war and that they were among the contributors to the massive production of B-24s . The A-36 (Apache, Invader, Mustang) variant of the P-51 was an important player in the Mediterranean Theater of Operations.

- B-25 Mitchell:
- The Mitchell is well represented in my sources, with two Design Analysis articles, and has its own section.
- P-51 Mustang:
- The Mustang, along with its attack variant the A-36 Apache is well represented in my sources, with two Design Analysis articles, and has its own section.
