Photograph taken at the Kunming factory #10
spring of 1942. Later Japanese forces captured
the factory, P-40's were later assigned to the 77th Fighter Squadron in India and used as fighter trainers.
Number 59 was a real hanger queen this aircraft gave a lot of trouble to the pilots and mechanics just to keep her flying.
