Northrop P-61A Black Widow Photos

Scan4412 Many years ago, I received these three photos from Northrop after a P-61 inquiry. These are P-61A’s in the original Olive drab paint scheme.

The Mid-Atlantic Air Museum has this to say: “The first of eighty operational P-61 Black Widows with a powered top turret rolled off the production line in October of 1943 followed by 120 improved P-61As, only the first 37 of which had the top turret and a three-man crew.  The first A-models entered operational service in May, 1944.”
