P-40E Warhawk 80th Fighter Group Burma Banshees - Skull Squadron

Top Flite 1/7th scale R/C P-40E Warhawk

First flight - 2002

Build time - 2.8 years

Engine - 1.2 cubic inch four stroke

This is not an exact replication of a Burma Banshee aircraft, but was built as a tribute.

Last flight - July 9, 2013. According to the NTSB preliminary report, the test pilot reported a loss of flight control. It's an unrepairable hull loss.

Thanks to our Long Beach Bureau Chief for these.
