| The Dutch Air Force ordered 61 Curtiss Falcons (known as the CW-22B)for use in the Netherlands East Indies. Thirty-five were delivered and 21 were enroute when Japan invaded the area. The enroute aircraft were diverted to Australia twelve of which were impressed by the USAAF and were assigned to the 35th Pursuit group. No formal USAAF serials or designations were ever assigned to these aircraft. The last five of the original order never left the USA and were turned over to the USN as SNC-1's. |
