Thank's for posting... Excellent article.

Some photo's from.... 1942 - Darwin, Australia: Lt George Preddy standing beside his P-40 named " Tarheel" displaying the dragon.

Also...

During the late afternoon of 12 July 1942 four P-40 Kittyhawks from the 49th Fighter Group were taking part in a training flight over Manton Reservoir. The pilots were:-

2nd. Lt. John Sauber
2nd. Lt. George Preddy
Lt. Jack Donalson
2nd Lt. Deems Taylor

The exercise was being led by Sauber, the wingman from the 9th Squadron's Blue Flight. Sauber had instructed Preddy to simulate an attack and he would then show the appropriate escape manoeuvre. Sauber dove in from a higher altitude on Preddy, but unfortunately he misjudged his separation and collided with Preddy's Kittyhawk.
