P-400 BW176, 39th FS/35th FG, flown by Lt. Charles King (5 kills), Port Moresby, New Guinea, June 1942.

One pilot who appreciated the good points of the P-39, even if he did subsequently score all five of his victories in the P-38, was Charlie King. He flew this P-400 throughout his first combat tour in mid-1942, BW176 then being transferred to the 80th FS when the unit relieved the 39th late in July. The veteran fighter remained on operations until at least January 1943.

P-400 s/n unknow "Pat", 39th FS/35th FG, flown by Lt. Eugene Wahl, Port Moresby, New Guinea, May 1942.

Lt Wahl scored one of the 39th FS's first victories on 26 May 1942 when he downed a Zero near Mt Lawson. north of Port Moresby - the fighter was seen to crash by observers on the ground. The sharksmouth on Wahl's P-400 was a personal marking, and was in no way associated with the 'teeth' that subsequently adorned the 39th FS's P-38s in 1943. Note that the fighter has had the red centre to its national marking deleted, this being painted out from May onwards in order to avoid any confusion with the Japanese 'meatball'.
