    It's beginning (with those windows), to look like the caravan that James Mays of UK's Top Gear "piloted" under a gas bag in one of their episodes.

    Now is when Brian will post a very obscure component in the lower left, like a tie down since he's aware of his audience's total frustration.

    You're right..........it's not an M20. I'll post more soon. And I'm 64 by the way.

    Yes. But in case of Brian, that's not a wonder. He doesn't say clearly how old he is, but imho, he could easily be my father, and this is a compliment.

    Let us see, how many a/c do I know, that would deserve a b/w photography...
    This is not a jet. And what do we see, two or three passenger windows?
    But it's not a flightboat. And it's not

    Indeed it is, the TF-86F Transonic Trainer.

    Only two were ever built, both were conversions from single seat fighters. North American was hoping to capitalize on the success of the F-86F, but this was not to be. Instead the two seat version of the F-100 was ordered.

    The one in the picture chrashed, and the USAF approved a second conversion, this one served as a chase plane at Edwards AFB for a number of years before being scrapped. This ship was converted from the last F-86F ever built, tail # 53-1228 One fun fact is that a Gentleman by the name of Bob Hoover was involved in these projects.

    More of the story here

    Here is another photo of the beauty:

    Would that be the TF-86F, a two-seater version of the F-86 Sabre?

    EDIT: And I think I found the original image.
