P-40N Kittyhawk

FX-760, 112 Squadron, RAF, 1944

The Curtiss P-40 Warhawk first flew in 1938 as a
modification of the Curtiss P-36 Hawk.

Warhawk was the official U.S. designation while the name
Tomahawk was used by the

British Commonwealth and Soviet forces for the P-40B and C
and Kittyhawk for P-40Ds

and later variants. The P-40 was first used by British
squadrons in North Africa and the

Middle East in 1941.
The P-40 lacked a two-speed supercharger making them inferior

to German aircraft but was an adequate fighter in low
altitude combat zones. Almost

12,000 P-40s were produced.

P-40N Kittyhawk c/n 9150M serial 43-23639 was delivered to
the RAF and at first

became FX760 GAT and later GA? and piloted by Fl/Lt Edward
Ross who had the ?

added. The aircraft was shot down by flak on August 21,
1944. The aircraft on display

at the RAF Museum Hendon isn’t the original GA?, it is a
composite of several aircraft

that have been assembled to make one P-40N and painted to
represent GA?. The

fuselage is from P-40N 42-106101 built for the RAAF with
serial A29-556.
