Oh man, with all this lovin' going around about the P-40 lets post as many pictures as we can of the P-40. Be it old, current, painting, what have you. Lets pay a little tribute to the P-40 and the men that flew and maintained them. The P-40 gave many countries the ability to fight and survive for another day. We owe our lives to the brave men that fought the early days of the war. When the odds were against them but yet they kept on fighting. Remember them, always remember them. :cry:

"Every pilot that jumped into a P-40 and flew a combat mission is a hero to this boy".


Anyway, sorry for the preaching. I just love the P-40 though. :D

So C'mon folks, lets see how many P-40 pics we can get up and post! :D :wink:

Taken at Geneseo 2007:

These are a few that didn't make the cut from my article in the latest Warbird Digest on flying out to Thunder Over Michigan. I hope those of you who bought the magazine enjoyed it.

All the best,
Richard

Don Plumb's C-GTGR captured over Ontario in June 1974. Pilot on this occasion is Max Hoffman prior to his subsequent purchase.

Both RIP.

The first period photo posted by Martin shows P-40K 42-9985, based at Sarasota AAFld.

Here's a couple shots of the same ship on display at Main St. And Pineapple Ave. in Sarasota, Florida... probably
1943. If you bought a war bond, you could have your picture taken sitting in the cockpit of the airplane.

When I first got these photos, I was a bit doubtful that this was the same ship as the one in the photo that Martin
posted. But soon thereafter I discovered this image online showing a young girl named Jean Marani in the
cockpit of this same Hawk at Main and Pineapple...

No problemo...


P-40 39-280

Image

Anyone familiar with this insignia?

Image


Also, here's a common shot of 39-280 that has appeared in print quite often. It was also used in a series of prints
issued by the USAF in the 60s and/or 70s. These prints are mechanically printed, not actual photographic prints.
I've had a hard time finding an actual wet print of this photo... so if anyone can steer me in the right direction,
even to a good quality scan, I'd be appreciative.
