P-40s at Biggs Field, TX



Just Passin' Through...

A lineup of unarmed P-40s at Biggs Field during a dust storm, pre-war... probably 1941.

This has the looks of a transient line, and these P-40Bs are most likely on a delivery flight.
Other types in the background include a P-36C, O-43A, two C-39s and a B-17B.
