    This particular RNZAF TBF-1C has the emblem of a "Joker" on the forward Port cowling.

    Neat pic of the P-40. Never seen that one before. Any further info on when and where? Too blurry to see the serial number. RNZAF Kittyhawk IV in Pacific Theatre markings of white identification stripes and empennage. No codes or unit ID markings visible.
