Curtiss P-40N Warhawk: Ghost Flyers.

One thing is certain, the P-40 was an outmoded, but still useful, fighter by the time the United States entered the war. In one area it remained unsurpassed though: no other aircraft type comes to my mind with such an array of incredibly cool nose art designs.
Here an old favorite of mine. The “Skulls” of the “Burma Banshees”. The 80th FG, as part of the 10th AAF, fought in the India-Burma Theater from September 1943. It was inactivated in November 1945.

Burma Banshee P-40’s parked at an undisclosed airfield in India. Take a note, each one of the “Skulls” is unique… personalized.
