P-40s to Russia 1941

Hi guys

The first 50 crated P-40s arrived in Russia in late August/early September 1941, together with a US erection party and presumably US flight-testing pilots.

A Captain Thomas and a 2/Lt Cook have been mentioned, but in what capacity I don't know.

I'm sure one of our American experts will know more, please!

Cheers
Brian

Two other names associated with the program were Lt Hubert Zemke and Lt John R Alison.

Search for Zemke on this link:

Scroll up a page for another brief mention of Zemke and Alison and the P-40s in Russia.
