CURTISS P-40 KITTYHAWK (Incl YP-37)

$9.95

Titles: Curtiss P-40 Kittyhawk No’s 1 and 2

The third most numerous US fighter of WW2, with over 15,000 delivered before production ended in 1944, the predecessor of the P-40 first flew in 1937. The initial USAAF order was at the time the largest ever single order for fighters. Exported to both the British and French air arms, later USAAF variants benefited from considerable development work carried out by Curtiss.

We offer three titles for the Curtiss P-40 which contain several flight manuals and one service manual for one of the predecessors and various production versions of the Curtis P-40 Kittyhawk.  Each title is US$9.95. The files have been scanned from the original flight manuals and retain any colour pages.
