This P-40C was finished as P-40 39-159 which was used by the Technical Training Command at Chanute Field, Illinois, U.S.A in 1940. The badge on the side of the aircraft “Sustineo Alas” translates to “Keep Them Flying” and was applied to most of the Training aircraft at Chanute Field. Flying Legends will be her first public display in the U.K.
