Description

Whether known as the Warhawk, Tomahawk, or Kittyhawk, the Curtiss P-40 proved to be a successful fighter during the first half of World War II. The P-40 in our National Air and Space Museum was restored by U.S. Air Force personnel at Andrews Air Force Base in 1975 and honors the "Flying Tigers" of the 75th Fighter Squadron, 23rd Fighter Group, 14th Air Force who flew in China against the Japanese.

Modeled after WWII parachute backpacks and inspired by the ferocious fangs and teeth painted on the nose of Flying Tigers' Warhawks, this rugged backpack is a clever way to pay tribute to aviation history.
