Good shot you got here, looks very clean and awesome.
very clean air to air shot. What was the general location for this shot? Thanks for sharing...there are never enough good vintage aviation photos
Your comment tells me I'm getting better.Thank you.I took it from the ground at Duxford Air Show near Cambridge,UK.
I'm going to be annoyingly anorak like here. Technically this is a Tomahawk rather than Warhawk. Great shot thought.
That's ok mate,I always had trouble with P-40.Thanks for correction.
Wikipedia says that all USAAF P-40s (any subvariant) used the Warhawk name.
Wikipedia is a good place to start any research but I wouldn't rely on information from there.
I agree; the single most valuable piece of any Wikipedia article is the "external links" section. Other than that, I tend to use it to confirm my memories (in this case Warhawk is US usage for P-40s, plain Hawk is a P-36 and Kittyhawk and Tomahawk are non-US names).
Yes sorry I was slightly incorrect myself. My error was that I am thinking too British. Tomahawk was the designation given to Commonwealth nation P-40Bs and Cs. This example in the photograph is a P-40B and my head went straight into "This is a Tomahawk" mode. I forgot the US called them Warhawks from the off. I do it with T-6s too, I call them Harvards regardless of what air force they represent. Technically US T-6s should be Texans or SNJs.
