Heros Flew These ~

Heros! This combat plane is a Curtis P-40E housed at the amazing Pima Air & Space Museum. Its markings are of the 49th Fighter Group, 9th Fighter Squadron, Darwin, Australia, 1942.  
Kudos to the brave pilots who took to the air in this aircraft knowing that it was inferior in many respects to most of the enemy aircraft they faced.
