First Flight of the P-64
Today marks the first flight of the North American P-64. While this plane is an upgraded version of the NA-50 which went to the Peruvian Air Force. The P-64 was originally designated the NA-68 which was supposed to go to the Royal Thai Air Force but didn’t ship out at the last minute. Today only two examples are known to survive this one, this one belonging to the EAA Museum and was flown for the first time in three years at EAA AirVenture last July.
