North American SNJ: Spit & Polish.

A natty US Navy ensign -love that collar pin- in the back seat of a shiny early specimen of the North American’s most famous trainer. He wears the usual US Navy headgear of the early 1940’s: a M-450 summer helmet with grey-green pressed leather ear cups and a gorgeous pair of Wilson Mk II pilot goggles.

With his attention to details, this “Brown Shoes” must have gone far in the service.
