Curtis P-40 Has Left the Building

Sadly, the Curtis P-40 has left the Museum. A few weeks ago, at the request of the P-40′s owner, FedEX, our crew prepared the fighter for its Pacific boat cruise to the Pacific Aviation Museum on Ford Island, Hawaii.

While it was sad to see the Flying Tiger leave, we do thank FedEX for allowing us to display and maintain the P-40 for over 20 years. On a brighter note, this move also presents us with the opportunity to display one of the many other planes in our collection (or maybe even a new one).

Below are some photos of the move preparations:
