Artist's Description

Named “Brooklyn Bum – 2nd” the Fighter Collection’s 1943 Bell P-39Q Airacobra G-CEJU is pictured taxying at Duxford during the 2008 Flying Legends display. The P-39 was a highly unusual design for a fighter in WW2. It was one of only two fighters that had the engine mounted amidships, on the centre of gravity. It was one of only a handful of WW2 aircraft to have a tricycle undercarriage and it had a huge 37mm cannon firing through the propeller hub. It was also unusual by having a car-type entrance door for the pilot.
