Aircraft design was advancing rapidly and by 1938 P-40 Warhawks like this one had been developed, with a top speed of 360 mph compared to the 310 mph of the P-35. Even so, the P-40 was no match for Luftwaffe fighters like the Bf 109, so it was mainly flown in secondary theaters like China, the Pacific and North Africa. The British were the first to use the shark's tooth motif, which was later adopted by the Flying Tigers piloted by Americans in China.

Cool photos and descriptions by a professional aviation photographer of the aircraft flying at the Chino Air Show in California.
