Nope. Mustang has a top speed of 437 mph in level flight. It should also be noted that many jets don’t have a set “stall speed”, as it all depends on the angle of attack. For instance, the Phantom, with [“A smooth pushover to 5 units angle of attack will unload the airplane and reduce the stall speed to nearly zero”](http://books.google.com/books?id=oeJuJtjK4k0C&pg=SA4-PA1&lpg=SA4-PA1&dq=f+4+phantom+stall+speed&source=bl&ots=NZgrvhmfIR&sig=Ad_xaIbL6RZzriCwf8fvt1h1mFI&hl=en&sa=X&ei=LqteU5CDDO2G2wXnx4DICw&ved=0CCkQ6AEwAA#v=onepage&q=f%204%20phantom%20stall%20speed&f=false). The approach speed for F-16s landing is typically between 160-210 mph, and I’d think the Raptor is similar (although actual speeds may be hard to come by, likely classified). It’s still very easy for a jet to fly slow enough to keep pace with a Mustang, and the Mustang doesn’t even have to be flying at top speed to do so.
