Identification Help Request

Post by Hurriquin »

Hi All,
Following the great help on my previous post I have some more aircraft I could use the collective power of UKAR members to identify. All appear to have been taken in the USA potentially at Oshkosh and Chino, plus other locations. Any help gratefully received...

1) B-29 not sure of the location or identity...

2) T-6 possibly at Chino?

3) F8F (I think...) possibly at Chino?

4) T-6 (I think...) possibly at Chino looks similar location to #3

5) Ventura (I think...)

Did I tell you I like puzzles like these? :laughing:

No.2: That looks a lot like a Howard 500 or something from that stable parked behind that T-6.
No.3: The A-26 in the background could be this one: https://www.airhistory.net/photo/137848/N8026E/435323 but you may have found that already. This page: https://www.aerialvisuals.ca/AirframeDo ... rial=50159 also has it stored at Chino with those tail markings.
No.4: I'm pretty sure that's a BT-13.
No.5: I was discussing whether it is a PV-1 Ventura or PV-2 Harpoon with myself but have decided to agree with you. The problem is that the cockpit windows indicate that it is a Howard or other executive converstion, which muddies the water quite a bit.
No.10: Intrigueing... as it is clearly a homebuilt scale version of something Italian, but what? Is it supposed to look like a Re.2000 perhaps?
No.11: A Ryan STM I think, possibly this one: https://www.aerialvisuals.ca/AirframeDo ... rial=21507 Apparently that airframe visited Oshkosh in 1988.

Thanks for that information! I had deduced that the registration should be C-GFSY but only found photos of a Europa XS that is currently using those marks.

Many thanks for the information so far though still some eluding identification. Is there any more info out there on any of these?
Thanks in advance

If it's any help, I noticed that the T-6 in the 2nd photo has a 3 bladed prop, maybe that could narrow down the search.
Would you like me to repost your request on the WIX forum? (USA based and lots of smart people on there)
