No. 80 Squadron was formed in September 1943 and equipped with Curtiss P-40 Kittyhawk. On July 29, 1944 Curtiss P-40N 43-23237 was received by 80 Squadron RAAF and assigned an ADF number A29-671 and letters BU-O. BU-O was assigned to Lt. Ken Goldring who named the aircraft "Angry Bee". From mid-summer 1944 American and Australian forces were engaged in battles to drive Japanese forces out of Dutch New Guinea. Noemfoor Island was a major goal because of three airfields that could be used to support the Allied advance.

Curtiss Kittyhawk Mk IV

Designed to meet a USAAC requirement for a pursuit aircraft, the P-40 Warhawk was first flown on October 14th, 1938. This aircraft was tough, virtually trouble-free and saw continual improvements to arms, armor and engines. The P-40 served in numerous combat areas; often outclassed by its adversaries in speed, maneuverability and rate of climb, it earned a reputation for extreme ruggedness. Its strong construction, heavy firepower, and ability to dive enabled it to compete with enemy fighters, and it was a formidable ground-attack aircraft. P-40s were also flown by the famed Flying Tigers against the Japanese in China.
