Wait, the P61 was the Black Widow. I'm thinking of the Airacobra and the King Cobra

Yes, it's the p-39 Airacobra, which were lend-leased to the Soviets by the US and used by some of their top aces. But you also made a wrong guess just as I predicted

Bring on the next image! I'm determined to win at least one of these despite my somewhat inferior knowledge of plane models compared to you experts.

Try this one:

(Sorry, I fail at inserting images!)

I saw this plane in a museum that was about to close. It had just been wheeled in, so there wasn't a sign. It wasn't listed on the museum's website, so I had to track it down the old fashioned way.........

I blocked out the serial #, since I was able to ID it without that.

Is it a Curtis produced plane? Or Grumman? I might have an idea, if it's either one of these producers.

It almost has to be a Grumman with that landing gear. Looks like a Wildcat front end mated to an Douglas SBD tail and Dehaviland Beaver wing. I want one.

Right.. I think this is a Curtiss O-52 Owl.

Pre WWII observation plane.

Obscure!
