Shark Weekend.

Those teeth, the first thing you see are those teeth. The Curtiss P-40 Warhawk may just be the most recognizable fighter of WWII thanks to those pearly whites. P-40s flown by the Flying Tigers sported those ferocious shark teeth so Japanese pilots would know just who downed them. Several P-40 Warhawks united for an incredible aerobatic performance at the Atlanta Warbird Weekend.

“The Atlanta Warbird Weekend (AWW) is an annual event dedicated to the remembrance and celebration of the men, women and machines of The Greatest Generation. In metro Atlanta, there are significant historical resources and AWW is the catalyst to bring together the organizations, aircraft and people that keep this history alive and engage families and businesses that want to keep this spirit alive.”
