what's the one behind the P-51?

that's a Chance Vought F4U Corsair, but the model is non-specific as there's nothing to go by :sigh:

On that Vought F4U, please check me, but it does somewhat look like 20mm gun ports vs. .50 cal in the right wing. If correct, this should limit the possible versions it could be.

Also, just noticed a flight by the P-51 on Dec. 6. I had the joy of watching it flying in circles above my house with, I think, a F-16 trying to keep up.... :-) Unfortunately, no photos turned out any good. Been wondering where it came from / went to; thanks for posting.

jptq63, you are correct about the 4 20mm canons in the wings making this a F4U-5 with the cowling scoops at the 4 and 8 o'clock positons.
This version first flew in April of 1946 from the Dallas plant.
