USAAF Bell P-39Q Airacobra Fighter - Lt. Col. William Shomo, 82nd Tactical Reconnaissance Group, 71st Tactical Reconnaissance Squadron, 1944 USAAF Bell P-39Q Airacobra Fighter - Lt. Col. William Shomo, 82nd Tactical Reconnaissance Group, 71st Tactical Reconnaissance Squadron, 1944 (1:72 Scale)

The P-39 was one of America's first-line pursuit planes in December 1941. It made its initial flight in April 1939 at Wright Field and by the time of the Pearl Harbor attack, nearly 600 had been built. Its unique engine location behind the cockpit caused some pilot concern, but this proved to be no more of a hazard in a crash landing than with an engine located forward of the cockpit.

The P-40 was the best known Curtiss-Wright designed airplane of the Second World War. It was also one of the most controversial fighters, vilified by many as being too slow, lacking in maneuverability, having too low a climbing rate, and being largely obsolescent by contemporary standards even before it went into production.
