Curtis P40 Warhawk


Curtis P40 was during the second world war used on almost all fronts. The aircraft was designed and produced in a large number before the war broke out in different varieties. Unfortunately it turned out that the aircraft didn't have the same capability as its foreign opponents. After the war broke out these planes were stationed in many areas in in Europe, Burma, India and French Indochina. The planes were also given as war aid to Chiang-Kai-Chek in China. Also Russia received war aid in form of military supplies of various kind, like these Curtis P40 airplanes. This particular plane is believed to have escorted Russian bombers that attacked Kirkenes in June 1943. The battered remains rest today on a depth of approx 20 meter outside the marina.
