Here's a link with some photographs:

To the best of my knowledge this is the only airworthy P-40F in existence.  I believe the only other remaining example of a Merlin-powered P-40 is the unrestored airframe of a P-40L in Italy.

I'm excited that there was the persistence, patience, and desire to have a P-40F take to the air again, a first in probably over 60 years.  It would be a sight to experience in person!

That is fantastic.  The P-40F looks beautiful.
I'm so glad that every major model of the Warhawk has survived.
I sent Judy an email a few weeks ago asking about status.
Now I can see why she was too busy to respond!
