Comment -
After many months of hard work stripping four layers of paint in preparation for its new colours, Peter Teichmanís Hangar 11 Collection unveiled P-40M Kittyhawk G-KITTís latest paint scheme on Sunday June 2nd at North Weald, Essex. After wearing markings applied for the filming of George Lucasí Red Tails movie for a few seasons, it was time for a change and now the aircraft is in the colours of the then Lt Philip Adairís P-40 from the 80th Fighter Groupís 89th Fighter Squadron based in the Assam Valley in the India/Burma theatre in 1943. The aircraft itself was named ĎLulu-Belleí after a girl Adair new from back in the States.

The event was announced via the Collectionís new facebook page and was a great opportunity to see not only the P-40 up close but also the Collectionís other aircraft, the icing on the cake being a display from Peter in Lulu-Belle.
