Looking in the WWII in color website, found this awesome looking P-40 in China.
Would love to see this type of P-40 painted up in the restored flying P-40's flying now.



Check the link below: Alan Larson and the P40! for details about the picture.

3  P-40 Warhawk Forums / P-40ís in WWII / P-40 pilot school at Hamilton AAF on: November 22, 2012, 11:07:10 AM
Hello all,
I'm new to the group and am interested in the P-40 Warhawk stationed at Hamilton Field for training.
I'm local to the Bay Area and work at Travis AFB.

I've dived into the http://www.aviationarchaeology.com/src/AFrptsMO.htm website and noticed all the training accidents and started to compile a list. I remember going to the last Hamilton AFB Open House in 1975, have a few pictures!

On researching thru the internet, I've seen mostly accounts of the WW2 dogfights, flying & wartime experiences, but not much on the training, crashes or personal accounts from Hamilton Airfield.

I was at the Nut Tree Airport 10 years ago or less at Duncan Millers hanger and had some conversation with a pilot from that era and said he crashed a P-40 into San Pablo Bay, wondering did the military retrieve the airframes from the water or mud?

Can we find a P-40 or parts of one out there preserved in the mudflats?
I'm interested at least to get involved with the Pre-WW2 and early 40's training at Hamilton Airfield and then the transition into the P-38 Lightnings that started training there before moving up to the Santa Rosa AAF.

Hope someone could open my eyes to that era! Thanks, Mac
