Great New England Wings and Wheels/Curtiss-Wright P-40 Warhawk

August 30, 2013

This past weekend I went to the Great New England Wings and Wheels show at Westover Air Reserve Base in Chicopee, MA. This was the first year they have done this show, as a filler in between the larger Westover Air Show.  It was a great day for taking pictures, between the planes and the cars, and I’m only now finding some time to go through them.

This first shot is a Curtiss-Wright P-40 Warhawk that was flown in from the American Air Power Museum in Farmingdale, NY (a future trip for me, I hope!). According to their site, this plane was first operational in 1935, and was active from 1937 through the end of World War II. The P-40 is best known for its service in China with Claire Chennault and the American Volunteer Group (AVG). The color scheme on the plane is that of the famous 1st AVG, better known as the “Flying Tigers”.
