There was one huge problem with the P-39 Airacobra, and that was that there was a door to get into the canopy. When the plane was in flight, the air pressure on the door was so great that a pilot could not open the door to jump out if he need to. A huge design error. Also, the Airacobra had a mid engine and it didn't handle properly, as reported by many pilots. There are many versions of this plane, these specs cover only one version.

The second highest scoring Soviet ace of the war, Alexander Pokryshkin shown here, flew the P-39 for 48 of his 59 victories. 16"x 11½" limited edition print. .....#0007421

Aviation Art Print
A P-400 (the export version of the P-39 Airacobra) does what it does best: flying down on the deck pounding Japanese ground positions. This P-400 was originally destined for the RAF in the Pacific, but like the others it became part of the 67th Fighter Squadron based at Guadalcanal in 1942. Though it still wears British camouflage, its newly added sharkmouth and American insignia make it clear what unit is dealing out the punishment. 23"x 19" print. .....#0008502
