A good friend of mine gave me this. It was his fathers.

Wow! Now that's a great gift!
Nice closeups of the model P-40B. Are you a fan of the Flying Tigers?

This is a bit off-topic, but one of the AVG's aces was Charles Older. Later, he was appointed to the Superior Court in Los Angeles County. He was the judge who presided over the trial of Charles Manson and his "family."

I did not know that. I have a buddy that collected AVG and 23rd FG stuff. Had a wonderful large theater made silk AVG flag and a couple of A-2 jackets. Stuff was worth some $$$$

A couple of C/U just shot.
