Too bad more pre-war Curtiss types don't survive.I
I'd love to see a Hawk or hear one of their engines (aside from an OX-5, but they're cool too).

How'd that pesky P-39 sneak in there? Oh well, any port in a storm. :wink:

Very nice selection of photos including a couple of really unique ones. For example, had never seen the one of the P-40 equipped with wing tanks. Thanks Mark!

That's because Flickr can't find a way to stop idiots from being idiots. Any photo(s) you want send me a PM and I'll get them to you.
