March 5, 1942 

Not much doing. Running again. Sent wire to Jean. Pretty quick after the last but better take every chance I get.

This afternoon, mechanics of the 21st succeeded in producing a hybrid P-40B/E out of Burns’ ship with parts from the wrecked P-40Es. Although recorded as a P-40B in subsequent operations reports, it was known as the “P-40 Something” among the Detachment personnel.
