The Curtiss P-40 was a sturdy fighter and innumerable pilots owe their lives to its rugged quality. Remembered as a 'best second choice,' it served with twenty-eight Allied and friendly nations. During the war, P-40s were supplied through the Lend-Lease program to England, China, Russia, and numerous other allies. These pursuit aircraft were found in all theatres of the war from Alaska to North Africa, throughout the Pacific, and in many parts of Europe. The shark teeth painted on the lower engine cowl was an idea borrowed from the British P-40 airplanes operating in North Africa and this scheme was later adopted by the American Volunteer Group in China.
