P-59 Airacomet (multiple)

I photographed these Bell P-59A Airacomet examples at March AFB, NMoUSAF and Planes of Fame Chino in 2018. The YP-59A at Chino was one of the 13 test aircraft that was so secret that wooden propellers were mounted to the front when moving the plane around to conceal the fact that it was a jet. The actual fake propeller can be seen hanging on the wall in the background of the Chino pics below.
