    In the Squadron/Signal "In Action" series there was an issue featuring the P-40 One Photo showed a line of parked P-40's and each had a Skull insignia (where the Tiger's Teeth were on the Flying Tigers)
    Does anyone have info about this unit?

    It's the 89th FS in the 80th FG, IIRC. Boom.

    Made a 1/48 model a while back, It's a P-40N Curtiss Warhawk, and as Procrass posted it's with the 80th Fighter Group known as the "Burma Banshees" part of the 89th Fighter Group based in Chittagong, India in 1943. I'll try to post a pic.
