P-40N-30-CU 44-7084

We have little information about this Hawk's wartime history... only that she was converted to a
TP-40N by Curtiss. She has been in the possession of both the NASM and the USAFM (NMUSAF these days),
and was owned by the late Bob Pond who helped start the Palm Springs Air Museum where she still
resides today. Also, this Hawk was one of four P-40s used for the film 'Pearl Harbor'.

This photo shows 44-7084 while she was with the USAFM during the early 1960s.
