Tony Weddel. A P-400 (the export version of the P-39 Airacobra) does what it does best: flying down on the deck, pounding Japanese ground positions. This P-400 was originally destined for the RAF in the Pacific, but like the others it became part of the 67th Fighter Squadron based at Guadalcanal in 1942. Though it still wears British camouflage, its newly added sharkmouth and American insignia make it clear what unit is dealing out the punishment. 23"x 19" print.
