Thank you, Armand, Yes, that's another story :). Just to clarify, it's a different collector. I am aware of that junkyard and have been to it (on Google Earth) :) I believe someone was able to recently get the owner (or his estate) to relinquish some F-82 parts he had in a shed. Unbelieveable what is still out there.

About the plane with the X on it. I have a strange feeling it's from RAF Coastal Command. It's a tail dragger with perspex missing from the front. Apart from that, not a clue. I don't think the front is right for a Hudson.

I like #3 - 'crashed in WW2'

 

Quite difficult for a SAAF Shackleton to travel 12 years back in time... ;)

 The one below is from the Wikipedia site for the movie. I am sure it was taken at Van Nuys Airport, primarily due to the presence of the aircraft parked behind it (the one with the numbers on the fuselage ending in "X"). In later years I knew its owner and he had a hangar at Van Nuys at the time this was taken. Extra points to anyone who can tell what it is!   :)

 

I will take a SWAG and say that the "X" aircraft is a Hawker product for sure. I'm just not sure if it is a Tempest II or more likely Sea Fury without a prop and spinner.

 

     Wha...what did I win? :)  B)  :rolleyes:

 

 

Armand, You should have left the picture of the "SHORT BIER" on your post. It was a much better angle of

that bird than the picture I posted.

Now that you mention it, I can see the undercarriage doors. I agree with Sea Fury, in navy (not Coastal Command) colours.

I've become blind! I can't see that 'X-plane' anywhere! :-(

I deleted since my photo was a capture from the web, meanwhile I take Yours for Your own!
As Uncle Google will provide pictures of Short Bier If asked, there isn't any reason to miss my picture.

Bring up the uploaded picture at the end of Bruce's post #14. You can see the X-plane under the B-25.

 

The picture I posted is from the Museum site on the web.

Winner, winner, Chicken Dinner! (Ding ding)!

Good eyes, Corsning, it is a Sea Fury belonging to Frank Sanders. Frank had a hangar at Van Nuys then moved his operation to chino after Leroy Penhall, owner of Fighter Imports and his General Manager Jim Noble and their wives tragically died in the crash of Penhall's plane after holiday in Mammoth, Sanders moved into the Fighter Imports hangar where he housed his Sea Furys, a twin Beech, and rented space for some of the Museum's restoration work.
