P-40 aircraft to Yugoslavia

Hi Srecko

The first 10 aircraft that were sent for Yugoslavia were all P-40C aircraft. The serial numbers for these aircraft were

41-13389
41-13390
41-13396
41-13397
41-13398
41-13399
41-13400
41-13401
41-13406
41-13407

These aircraft were first forwarded to the RAF, then sent on further to USSR via sea. One of these aircraft still exists today and is flying in the US after being recovered and restored.

I'll have alook through the data I have this end, but cannot remember any further aircraft (by serial number not by number of aircraft ordered)having been allocated for the Yugoslav forces.
