Back At It Again!

Originally delivered to the USAAF in World War Two, this Bell P-63A Kingcobra (N94501) ‘Fatal Fang’ ended up with the Cal Aero Technical Institute in California in 1950.

It was acquired by the Planes of Fame Air Museum in 1953 and was displayed in several museums before being acquired by the Yanks Air Museum in 1977.

It stayed as a static exhibit in the museum for decades, until a restoration project began to receive more serious attention in 2021.

Fortunately for us, we got to see this awesome Kingcobra start her engines before taxiing at the Yanks Air Museum last October. As usual, this aircraft looked and sounded amazing in the video below. You can just tell that this warbird is itching to take to the skies again!

Hopefully, we get to see the Fatal Fang in air shows later this year.
