    Curtiss Kittyhawk

    Flight Lieutenant A R Costello of No. 112 Squadron poses with his Curtiss Kittyhawk at Sidi Heneish in Egypt, April 1942. If any aircraft came to symbolize the Desert Air Force it was the rugged, American-built P-40, known to the RAF as the Tomahawk and Kittyhawk. No. 112 Squadron famously decorated its aircraft with 'sharkmouth' nose art.
