Dose any one have any good DOC photos of a P-40E from any of the Fly Tigers squadrons?

From what I have read over the years, hte Flying Tigers flew P-40B's, not hte "E" variant which was a much better and highly changed aircraft from the "B". After checking out the web page listed above it too speaks only of hte 100 P-40B's delivered to the Tigers.

Just food for thought.

The P-40E variant was operated after the US entered the war and the AVG was absorbed into the regular Army Air Corps. Technically they were not the AVG, a point heatedly debated by many on both sides. Many of the E model aircraft did, however, carry the AVG sharkmouth.

Chad,
The AVG revceived approximately 30 P-40E's starting in March of 1942 (they disbanded July 4th 1942) The picture I posted is an AVG P-40E. True the CATF and later the 14th airforce operated E Models, but so did the AVG. The AVG website doesn't cover The later airplanes. Osprey "Aircraft of the Aces" Volume 41 by Terrill clements details the AVG airplanes and includes the AVG E models. They started from A/C Number 101 through 134
This book is available through amazon.com
I paid 13.00 plus shipping. It is a must for any P-40 enthusiast.
The Paint sacheme on My p-40is inaccurate for the e- models unfortunately but It looks cool so I left it LOL

Mike, thanks for the clarification on the "E" models. I wasn't aware of them ever flying them, just the "B"'s.

Bird looks good in hte pic.
