    Thought I would start a thread of shark mouth painted aircraft. Seems that this type of decoration is very common on aircaft from all wars. If you have a pic, please post!

    I'm only posting one pic of a P-40 as that was the most common warplane to sport 'teeth'.

    Sources unknown unless noted on the pic.

    Looks like the Phantom was as popular as the P-40!
