November 28, 1941 

Formation with Dyess today–6 ships in a loop–rough but fun, best work out in a long time. Started getting P-40Es today, probably fly them tomorrow.

In Doomed, I had indicated that the 21st began receiving its P-40Es on December 4th, when 10 were reported delivered. Burns’ diary provides first-hand information that the turn-over was six days earlier.
