And what is the plane in #4? It looks rather like a Brewster Buffalo, but...
Hi Steve, hopefully David doesn't mind me answering for him. It's a CA-13 Boomerang. The Boomerang was designed and built in Australia by the Commonwealth Aircraft Corporation between 1942 and 1945, at the time the RAF demand was out stripping supply of British types so Australia had to find a solution for its lack of fighter types..
The Boomerang was faster than the Buffalo, and carrier much heavier armament with two 20mm cannons and four machine guns.
The aircraft in David's image is operated by the Temora Aviation Museum, and is one of only two still airworthy. There were 3 airworthy up until a few years ago when one was donated to a museum who have left it on static display ever since..
Also welcome David and great set of images, always good to see another aussie posting here....
