Homecoming week at the University of Louisiana at Monroe began with an iconic display of the Warhawk spirit.  


Members of Chennault Aviation and Military Museum brought a famed P-40 plane to Scott Plaza on the university’s campus Monday morning. 


Chennault member Tom Shutt says the aircraft is synonymous with the work of Gen. Claire Chennault and the Flying Tigers squadron.  "It has markings of the Chinese Nationalist Army, whom General Chennault was supporting in the early years with the American Volunteer Group," he said.
