Does anyone have a photo of a P-40N modified to carry a photo reconnaissance camera just behind the baggage compartment door (on the pilot's left side?). My uncle flew one with the 25th Fighter Squadron in Yunnanyi, China, in WWII.

I would assume that you are aware of my fathers aircraft that he bought from Crown Assets after the war.It is AK803(RAF)or 1034 under RCAF-Curtiss P-40 original,preserved as it was when he purchased it in storage,My father has accumulated lots of spare parts over the years and runs the engine occasionally and I would like to see someone record the history while he is still with us as it is virtually as it was after the war and he has been very low keyed about the fact that has the plane but it would make an excellent documentary for someone.
