B-17 test bed with an Allison T-40 turboprop. That plane has been restored to flying condition as the "Liberty Belle".

This B-26G played a key role in the development of a new USAF airplane. What was the development goal of this B-26, why was it important to the new plane, and for what new airplane(s). (Only one needed...there were three different planes using the B-26 testing)

This is interesting. I found info on a XB26H with the tandem landing gear, but with different (or mistaken) BuNos:

XB-26H: one experimental aircraft, 44-28221, with zero-track tandem landing gear.

Before 468221 was a XB-26H, it WAS a B-25G. So the tandem or bicycle landing gear apparently is what distinguished this aircraft. Now why was it supporting this arrangement? What drove this design?? And name the aircraft this XB-25H helped out in design...:)

I'm guessing the B-47 Stratojet.

The wings were too thin for landing gear and the fuselage slim lines would be ruined (and the bomb bay made smaller) by using side-by-side gear sets.

Heres a new one:

I would say either a Mig-1 or a Mig-3 that was captured and sent to Japan.
The radio mast is in a different spot on my Mig-3 picture than it is on your Mig-3 picture so that is why I am not certain.

Flying in this aircraft would be fun in the south Pacific as long as the Japanese were not around.

It was built by the Short Brothers in Belfast Ireland.

If you buy a shirt, usually it has a lable that says "Made in XXXXXXXX"
