Second book in the series, “Curtiss P-40 in Brazil” tells the history of this famed US fighter in the Brazilian Air Force (FAB). Used between 1942 and 1954, the P-40 Warhawk was the first aircraft to serve in the FAB able to carry out fighter and air defense missions in Brazil during World War II. The P-40 was instrumental in establishing the structure of the FAB Fighter Aviation. At the end of the conflict, all P-40s were concentrated in Canoas, becoming synonymous with the 1st/14th Aviation Group - “Pampa” Squadron”, the Unit which had the privilege of using the Warhawks for a decade until their retirement, 60 years ago.
