Curtiss Buffalo Hawk 81A-3 (P40C) Tomahawk Takes Flight

After a massive rebuild operation at Ardmore's Avspecs, the extremely rare Curtiss P40C Tomahawk c/n 14777 AK-295 registered ZK-TWK took to the skies of Ardmore 17 April alighting from runway 21 at exactly 1700 for a 18 minute test flight conducted under grey, showery skies.  What an awesome experience to be on hand to witness the first flight since 1942 for this particular machine.....

Airborne for the first time since February 1942.

Two Tomahawks........................

Fantastic!  Well done Avspecs.
