P-40 Warhawk in Muskogee, OK


Such a fantastic week with this classic aircraft.
I was down at the local field where I fly, when a warbird was seen, banking away from me, I decided to see if I could find out anything about it.
It turned out, that it was a P-40 Warhawk, which had been undergoing an engine full restoration. After removing the whole front end, the engine was shipped to Chino in California for the major work. On return, the airport staff put her back together again. The staff at Muskogee Davis Field were simply wonderful and allowed my wife and I to walk about all around the aircraft. Then, over to the SNJ-5 converted to a Mitsubishi Zero Kate, for a look at that !!!!

Vintage P-40 fighter flew over - went to find it ! (10 min 2 sec)


We were told that the P-40 would be flying out on Friday. So I turned up at 9am and found out that she had a coolant leak. It would have to be fixed, to fly out for the 2018 airshow tour. The staff did a great job of fixing up the leak and off she went, pilot Bob Watts at the controls.

P-40 part 2 - will she fly out today ? (8 min 59 sec)
