That's great news! Hadn't heard about it, I will look them up.

Yes, that was very sad to see. He was from Minnesota where I live. I only saw a couple photos, and they were at a distance, one article I read said there was an apparent mechanical malfunction. I've been looking through my airshow photos, I thought I saw it at an air display nearby a few years ago.

I haven't seen that before, very interesting. Good questions, I haven't ever heard why they would do that? I don't know how much actual gunnery practice they got back then, it wasn't like it is today though. Maybe this unit was for learning combat maneuvers and tactics?

Before WWII vintage photos on this page are the only ones I have seen, and the one with the gun covers in the black and white, I didn't see until this unit's main page.

It's an easy modification to do, it would be unique from other P-40's, and you have photographic proof of it, so it was at least used on some aircraft. I would go for it  Smiley

I hadn't heard of them not having machine guns in the squadron before, I had heard that it was a training unit, so that does make sense. Other than a couple pictures in some books and the captions, haven't really heard of anything about this unit. I do have a 1/48 model with these markings.
