I understand that pilots have to be familiar with how their aircraft might glide in the event of engine failure.  Does anyone know what the glide ratio is for a P-40 Warhawk?

According to the Pilot Training Manual for the P-40, with power off it's approximately 4.5 feet forward to 1 foot down at a speed of 150 mph, with wheels and flaps up and no overload.
