Aircraft

The P-40 is most widely known as the aircraft of the Flying Tigers, aka the American Volunteer Group (AVG), who began fighting the Japanese in China during the early days of the Pacific war.  This airplane is also one of the Museum’s few actual combat veterans, having shot down a Japanese incendiary balloon off British Columbia. 

Purchased by Edward Maloney in 1960 and restored to flight by Planes of Fame Air Museum in 1980, the museum's aircraft is a Kittyhawk IV (equivalent to the P-40N in USAAF service), flown by the Royal Canadian Air Force.  It is painted in the markings of the 325th Fighter Group.
