Not a proper N-number, so I don't know what it is, but it will get you hits on this plane.

She sure is purty... Too bad the P-40 got eclipsed pretty quickly by better fighters, but man, that's a good looking airplane!

That shark looks to be 'Drooling' on the ramp.

she may have been eclipsed, but she was tougher than a mustang from all the guys I knew who flew her.
I always wondered why Curtiss didn't upgrade the P-36 with the R-2600..it was already in production when they put the Allison on it to make the P40. would have been equal to the P47 and the F6F if you ask me. and would have out turned the P40 and P51 with that big radial from what a P-36 pilot had told me.

however, the r-2600 was a radial whereas the Allison was an inline allowing the narrow nose so famous with the P-40 and P-51. The P-36 was always a radial, but just under performed. It wasn't until the Rolls Royce Merlan that the two-stage supercharger was used which allowed a ceiling of 40,000 and 400+ mph. The P47 & F6F used the R-2800 radial

Nice shot, John! The P-40 was/is a great aircraft! And for anyone who cares, here is info from Wikipedia regarding N numbers:

An older aircraft (registered before 31 December 1948) may have a second letter in its identifier, identifying the category of aircraft. This additional letter is not actually part of the aircraft identification (e.g. NC12345 is the same registration as N12345). Aircraft category letters have not been included on any registration numbers issued since 1 January 1949, but they still appear on antique aircraft for authenticity purposes. The categories were:

C = airline, commercial and private
G = glider
L = limited
R = restricted (such as cropdusters and racing aircraft)[8]
S = state
X = experimental
