Curtis Wright P47 and a TF P51? Should be a K model I believe with the tall tail.

Quoted from the Planes of Fame website. "Out of the grand total of 15,660 P-47 Thunderbolts produced for the US Army Air Corps during World War Two, perhaps least known operational versions were the Curtiss-built P-47Gs. In order to meet expanded wartime production goals for the P-47D Thunderbolt, the New York-based Republic Aviation Company built a second plant in Evansvile, Indiana and also licensed the Curtiss-Wright Company to produce the aeroplane under the P-47G designation. Between December 1942 and March 1944 Curtiss-Wright produced a total of 354 P-47G Thunderbolts which were identical to the Republic-built "razorback" P-47D models."
Also, the Mustang started life as a D model, and after it's life as the highly modified unlimited racer 'Stiletto' it was rebuilt as a dual control TF-51.
