P-40N "Yellow C" Serial# 42-105506. Aircraft Code C. Flown by Maj. Emmett S. Davis 35th Fighter Squadron 8th Fighter Group, Tsili Tisili New Guinea, January 1944. Davis earned the nickname "Cyclone" whiles tationed in Hawaii, where his peers considered him the Hottest Army pilot among them. In the summer of 1943, as recently appionted CO of the 35thFS, Davis oversaw the switich to the new P-40N from P-39s. He scored his first kill on 27th September of 1943 and 2 more on 26th of December 1943. He believed he scored 5 but only received 2 confirmed.

P-40M "White 125" Serial# Unknown. Aircraft Code 125. Flown by Capt. Joeseph J Lesicka 44th Fighter Squadron 18th Fighter Group, Munda August 1943. Lesickas had already scroed 3 kills in four months with the 44thFS when he tookoff on a mission over the invasion beach at Munda, on New Georgia Island. His patrol met a large formation of Jap bombers and fighters, and in a hectic 20 minute engagement he shot down 5 enemy aircraft. Lesicka was the 2nd pilot to make "Ace in a Day". Lesicks plane was named after burlesque star Gypsy Rose Lee, this being a refrence to the fact that the P-40M was "striped" of weight in an attempt to improve preformance. It also had a eagle design painted on the wheel covers, I left this off because I never could find a pic of the eagle.

Drop this your p-40M folder.

West, whose flying skills and fighting spirit matched that of Maj. Davis, was the first to become an ace in the 35thFS.

The name "Lucky" was added on both sides of the nose some weeks after the four kill mission. West went on to score a further 8 kills in the 35th when it re-eqipped with P-39's.

P-40K Serial# 42-45381. Aircraft Code none. Flown by 1st Capt. George L. Hicks 18th Fighter Squadron 343rd Fighter Group, Aleutian Islands. Hicks joined the 18thFS after more than a year of instructor duty in Florida. Flying from Amchitka , he participated in the last fighter strike against kiska before its capture on 15th August 1943. Hicks had a personal insignia painted on the nose of his p-40K which depicted the Disney character 'Pluto' urinating on the rising sun. Incredibly, someone at Eleventh Air Force HQ objected to it, he was ordered to remove it.
