    17. It's obviously WWII. Korea and Vietnam were jets.

    This might be the P-51 Mustang, out best fighter in WWII and one of the best prop planes ever built.

    The pictures are great!

    Photobucket links, so I can't see the pictures right now. But if it is the Hellcat, then these people just need to open a frikken history book. The Spitfire and Mustang look NOTHING at all like the Hellcat.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    No, the OP took a pic of an old restored prop trainer, the AT-6.

    I'm surprised the DUmmies didn't say it was the Space Shuttle. :D

    Well I can definitely see confusing an AT-6 for a Hellcat to the unitiated, but it still baffles me that someone would utter Mustang or Spitfire. Thats just retarded.

    It is in fact a North American AT-6 "Texan" two seat advanced trainer.

    And with a little modification, the Texan made a good stand in for the A6M Zero in films and TV shows like Tora Tora Tora and Black Sheep Squadron.

    Actually the Russkies got damn good use out of the Texan as a horizontal and dive bomber during WWII. IIRC they were sent a bunch for training and threw them into service along with the kitchen sink and everything that sported an engine and an aileron.

    AH HA

    Believe it or not this



    looks a lot like this



    Which is why when I saw it, I thought it looked like a Wirraway..and I was right.

    The T-6 is known by a variety of names; the "Texan" by the US Air Force and US Navy, the "Harvard" by our British and Canadian allies, and the "Wirraway" by the Aussies.
    There's one parked at a museum I drive past every day. :D
