P-40C Takes to the Air!
John Lamont is lining up for the first test flight. Well done to the Avspecs team! (photo - Colin Hunter)
News is circulating that another P-40C has flown! Special thanks go out to Colin Hunter for allowing me to post a picture of Rod Lewis's P-40C that is fresh from restoration at Avspecs Limited in New Zealand. This rare Curtiss is one of only a handful of early C model P-40s. It has been restored with a Pearl Harbor paint scheme. Watch for news of more amazing restorations coming from the Avspecs! Mosquito and Spitfire's are currently making progress in their shop. See more of Colin's great photos using the link below.
