Bell YP-39 Airacobra: Kodachrome Mirage.

One of the 13 service test examples ordered by the Army Air Corps in 1940. Sadly, clipped beasts already. Despite its ultra slick and purposeful looks the fate of the P-39 family was already sealed when the Air Corps decided to do away with the complex and troublesome turbosupercharger in their Airacobras.

Curtiss Electric prop and a “tight” spinner: lovely  nose job affair.
