P-40N-5 "Butter Bean II" #65 Major Albert L Evans

P-40N #65 flown by Maj. A L Evans can be seen in the "Adair" collection, displaying 4 white spokes on its wheels while the others are painted black.
Some color footage captured it too, while the "LIFE magazine" archives offers another view. Serial number appears to be 2105233, on this picture.

  1. I had the chance to meet the Evans family at Al's funeral. He was buried at Arlington National cemetery with full military honors which I was very happy to see. The US Air Force did a missing man formation fly over above the cemetery. My father would refer to "Al" as his hero. I guess you could say that would make him a "Hero's Hero".
