P-40 Warhawk visits New York

By on July 8, 2019

Florida-based Warbird Adventures, Inc. will be bringing the dual control Curtiss P-40 Warhawk “American Dream” to the National Warplane Museum in Geneseo for the entire week of July 8 through 16. The aviation icon was manufactured by Curtiss Aircraft in Buffalo during WWII.

Known for being the first line of defense during the attack on Pearl Harbor, December 7, 1941, the P-40 holds a special place among the WWII Fighters in history and was used in every theatre of the war, but perhaps the “Flying Tigers” under Claire Chennault in China were the most famous. “American Dream” is a flying national historic monument, as it achieved two confirmed Japanese aerial victories, one Zero fighter and one Betty bomber, before being downed over New Guinea in September 1943. The Aircraft has now been meticulously restored, and is equipped with dual cockpits and dual controls for pilot training.

“American Dream” will be joining other vintage aircraft at the National Warplane Museum for the Greatest Show on Turf over the July 13 and 14 weekend and will be offering training flights the entire week of July 8 through 16 for both pilots and non-pilots alike, as well as being on display for a rare glimpse of one of aviation’s most iconic fighters.
