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

As their probe continues, NTSB investgators painstakingly reassemble the airframe in a secluded hangar.

The aircraft was not equipped with a flight data recorder, or cockpit voice recorder.

Retracts still work.

She went in at 50% throttle. The spinner shattered as designed, thus absorbing some of the force. Pushrods and tubes are bent, but the prop shaft is OK.
