Could someone happen to have any color information (or even a few good photographs) of any the P-40 that belong to the 4th air force that was station in Southern California (Los Angeles) during February, 1942. Iím doing a little research on the battle of L.A. that took place on the 24/25  of February, 1942. I have been to countless web sites and canít find a thing. I would appreciate anything on color and markings. Iím not sure, but I think the 4th Air Force P-40s were the E variant? Thank you.

Do you know what unit (Squadron/Group) they were with at the time, or what base/s they were flying out of ?
This would help some, the 4th AAF covered a large portion of the westrn US states in thier Command, and the unit/s in questions would have to have been assigned to some unit-most likely a Fighter unit.
e mail me if you have any further info I may be able to help,    WeBeEmblems@aol.com

Did any P40’s even get scrambled? ...it was most all massive AA fire over Los Angeles I’m not sure they would want to put friendly up in the mess and the nearest P40's may of been at March Field in Riverside….
(My Dad was 30 years old, an Los Angeles native, and in the Army in Los Angeles at the time and watch the whole bloody thing…told me downtown Long Beach was a wreck from all the falling AA shells)
