    entered operational service towards the end of the war Designed around the contemporary FAA concept of a two seat fleet reconnaissance fighter the pilot and navigator weapons officer were housed in separate stations The design proved to be sturdy long ranging and docile in carrier operations although the limitations of a single engine in a heavy airframe reduced overall performance The Fairey Firefly served in the Second World War as a fleet fighter but in postwar service although it was superseded by more modern jet aircraft the Firefly was adapted to other roles including strike operations and anti submarine warfare remaining a mainstay of the FAA until the mid 1950s Both the UK and Australia Fireflies flew ground attack operations off various aircraft carriers in the Korean War In foreign service the type was in operation with the naval air arms of Australia Canada India and the Netherlands whose Fireflies carried out a few attack sorties as late as 1962 in Dutch New Guinea Below is a list of Firefly airframes that survived military service DK545 D 02 DT989 R 01 MB410 D 03 PP392 90 PP462 R 07 PP469 R 01 VH127 D 05 VT409 R 87 VX388 D

    the Italian Co Belligerent Air Force Designed by Bell Aircraft it had an innovative layout with the engine installed in the center fuselage behind the pilot and driving a tractor propeller via a long shaft It was also the first fighter fitted with a tricycle undercarriage Although its mid engine placement was innovative the P 39 design was handicapped by the absence of an efficient turbo supercharger limiting it to low altitude work As such it was rejected by the RAF for use over western Europe and passed over to the USSR where performance at high altitude was less important Together with the derivative P 63 Kingcobra the P 39 was one of the most successful fixed wing aircraft manufactured by Bell Below is a list of Airacobra airframes that survived military service 41 6802 88 41 6951 D 02 41 6970 C 72 41 7215 R 02 42 4312 R 04 42 4949 D 42 8740 A 05 42 8784 R 00 42 18403 S 93 42 18408 S 93 42 18811 S 93 42 18814 R 01 42 19027 D 02 42 19034 S 93 42 19039 D 02 42 19597 A 03 42 19943 P 02 42
