Mark. This is decidedly a "wish it was mine " image. Superb!
Being an older guy who lived through WW2 and always interested in military aircraft I would appreciate you telling us what this 1940's fighter is. As most US fighters (P51 Mustang and P38 Lightning excepted) had radial engines like the one you show us here I can't decide what it is as I would need to see the wings and tail fin to make an educated guess.
A well deserved Photo of the Dday, Mark. Pete #7958325

Thanks for all the positive buzz.. I know how hard it is to float to the top these days! Peter wanted to know what type of aircraft? It's a It's a Canadian variant of a North American AT-6.

Best Always,

Thanks Mark. So not a fighter but a WW2 advanced trainer. In the UK it was known as a 'Harvard' and in the USA a 'Texan' but thanks again for sharing it with us. Pete #7960819
