This 'first' was done in conjunction with North American O-47A reconnaissance aircraft.

Sorry, not what I'm looking for. While the Flying Tigers had pilots from the air corps, they weren't officially part of the army as they were a volunteer force.

I'll give it a shot: the first combat engagement of Americans in WW2 was that of the Flying Tigers in China flying P-40s against the Japanese.

What was a first for US Army Air Corps P-40s in 1940 and why were they doing it?
For a bonus point, which Group were they from?

How about the heinkel 219, or maybe the p-61 black widow?

Whoops, sorry - yes, it does have to be a service model, not just a prototype.

Time for one of pigsty's quick questions, then.

What aircraft had the second-largest wing ever fitted to a fighter?


Question, Did the aircraft have to have entered service, if not my guess is the Avro Canada F105 Arrow The aircraft did fly under it own power.
