    I took these in June at the Pylon School at Reno. 2 P-40s showed up to the school. These same two guys also raced in September

    Excellent shots Joe and great subjects to boot.:thumbright: Do you know if they actually use the belly tanks of if they are just for looks. I have been curious as to wether or not the FAA would allow their use or not.

    I believe they use the belly tanks but they cannot be jettisoned.

    Wonderful candid pictures. I've always had a soft spot for the P-40.

    Thank you.:thumbright: I kinda figured they had to be hard mounted so as to reduce the possibility of injuring someone on the ground. I just didn't know if they were allowed to use them or not.:) Again, excellent photos sir. The detail shots I can definitely use for a model build.:thumbright:

    I love these Warhawks. Great photos and thanks for sharing. Are these P-40s from Flying tigers?

    No Max - they are privately owned and were flown at the Reno Air Races in 2010.
