A P-51 doesn't carry the avionics package that any modern day fighter carries.
Too much air combat now is dependant on the electronic systems, with lock ons for missiles, counter measures and so on.
nothing beats a close in dogfight with just eyeballs for targetting.
I've read reports where modern day aircraft fail to lock on or cannot pick up ufos on their onboard systems, or their systems fail.
Maybe this is some form of countermeasures used by the ufo, which screws with our current level of technology, but wouldn't have any effect on a
vintage aircraft such as a P-51
