Owned by the late Major Dallas Adellon Clinger of Wyoming. Wyomings only Flying Ace – 16th Fighter Squadron “Flying Tiger” member of the 51st and 23rd fighter groups. His Curtiss P-40E-1 Warhawk graphic was titled “Hold’n My Own.” 5 Ariel victories over the Japanese during WWII. Awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross, Purple Heart, Chinese Air Hero Medal, and many others.
How many people can say they have a P-40E Warhawk 1/48 Display Model created after their plane. You can if you were Dallas A. Clinger…
“Made of Philippine mahogany, this 1/48 scale model of the shark-mouth P-40E Warhawk flown by 5-victory ace Dallas Clinger – Wyoming’s only World War II ace! – of the 23rd Fighter Group is hand painted and detailed, has a 9ï¿½” wingspan, and includes a display stand.” Perhaps the most modeled P-40 of all time.
Later he owned the appropriately named Flying Saddle Lodge – Alpine, Wyoming.
Dallas was a gunslinger– no doubt. He had a business in Alpine, Wyoming after the war called the Flying Saddle which had a bar as well. Behind the bar was a large picture of him in his P-40. His aircraft had the “Holding My Own” caricature on the vertical of the China-man peeing on the rising sun. People that knew him better said he was a fresh out of the 1850’s kind of guy ready to fight and not afraid to get into a fray– no matter what the odds.
There is a nice article about him by Col. Robert L. Scott in the Mt. Adams Sun from Dec. 22, 1944 titled “God is my co-pilot” extolling his tenacious flying abilities, “He just wanted to fight.”
