This aircraft is the last Curtiss P-36C built. After leaving the factory in 1939, it took part in several American air races and to the War Games at Maxwell Field, before serving with several different squadrons on the U.S. East Coast. In 1942, it was labeled obsolete, decommissioned and acquired by a Pratt & Whitney Tech instructor from Canada.
After a superb restoration under the leadership of Matt Nightingale at Chino, California, it was back in the skies, flown by the great pilot Steve Hinton, and made it first public appearances at the 2015 Planes of Fame Airshow. A few months later, the Curtiss P-36 moved to UK and joined the fleet of the The Fighter Collection.
