P-40 Warhawk

The P-40 Warhawk flew for the first time 74 years ago today. Developed from the P-36, the P-40 was America’s most numerous fighter aircraft in service when World War II started. The P-40 bred a generation of fighter pilots with Boyd “Buzz”

Wagner becoming the first United States Army Air Forces ace of World War II. The Warhawk was immortalized by the “Flying Tigers” of the American Volunteer Group who used the aircraft with great success in China. This P-40 is part of the Linear Air Park display at Dyess Air Force Base and is a replica of the Warhawk nicknamed “Kibosh” flown by Lieutenant Edwin Dyess, the base’s namesake.
