This is a World War 2 fighter plane known as a P-63F Kingcobra. It’s one of two F models built; the other prototype crashed. It’s also one of three Kingcobras still flying in U.S., so it’s a very, very rare aircraft. (it’s insured for a lot of money). It is armed with a 37mm cannon in the nose and two 50-caliber machine guns. While not flown by U.S. in combat, Kingcobra was bought and flown by Soviets, who had great success using it to fight German tanks with it. This is an amazing aircraft. John Mosley from Clinton Body Shop repainted it. #ww2 #aviation #kingcobra#USArmyAirForce
