Piston Engines Never Grow Old

This P-40’s piston engine is music to the ears. That pilot is lucky to fly such a stellar warbird like this Warhawk.

P-40s were used back in WWII as a ground-attack aircraft that succeeded the P-36 Hawk. It is a single-seater, single-engined fighter capable of holding 2,000lbs of ordnance under the wings and fuselage. Its wings have a total of six M2 machine guns that can provide ample firepower alone.

It is awesome to see a P-40 still alive and kicking today especially since it has been 64 years since it fully retired. Just shows the dedication these people have to preserving these warbirds.
