    Yes...although the one in the pic is a post-war B.35. I prefer the more 'classic' BIV or FBVI without the blister on the canopy. ( But I wanted to use one of my pics...... )
    That's what I thought, haven't recall seeing a WWII Mosquito with a blister.

    Nice photo.

    Cheers!

    But wait, now I remember, the Photo-recon version of Mosquito PR.XVI has a blister.

    So far two of the Brit planes in this thread were also adopted by US forces - the breathtakingly beautiful Mossie and the effective Harrier.

    Any others?

    The Bristol Beaufighters were used by the U.S. as well.

    I particularly like the long nose, torpedo bomber version, probably the TF.X.

    Don't forget the Spits, too were used by the U.S. Forces.

    The Beaufighter is another good looking plane.
    I like the 'cab forward' design (for lack of better words).

    Those Beaufighters were in ETO, notice the Invasion Stripes.

    They were very effective weapon against ships.

    At the PTO, the Australians frequently used them to attack Japanese ships.

    Again, they had many variations.

    I have to add another one of my favorites on this thread.

    The Bear, TU-95.

    These things are just massive and loud, one of the symbols of The Cold War.

    Ho 229. The Hortens designed it and Gotha was intended to be the manufacurer.
    I knew it was one of those

    Although not strictly a military airframe the trophy racer Supermarine Sb6 was a gorgeous aircraft built for speed.

    Considering what it laid the groundwork for, I'd certainly also include that one.

    Further more, it looks gorgeous.
