The history of KH-51 ( Serial Number 43-5925. Soviet Tactical Number "23", 191 IAP and piloted by Sub.Lt. V.A. Ruevin ) is as follows: On 27 Dec, 1943 a P-40M made a forced landing on the frozen Lake Valkj√¬§rvi in the Karelian Isthmus. Finns captured it in perfect condition. It was overhauled at the Mechanics' School and delivered to HLeLv 32 on 2 July, 1944. Plane was misidentified as KittyHawk at the time and coded KH-51 ( Exact type was P-40M-1-CU ).

swastika on the wings pointing the wrong way, the fuselage one is the correct one, no ?
