    Okay I found a picture of the prop I thought was on the front of a P-51 closest thing I could find to it it's obviously not off ac-130j turboprop model but it sure is close to what I saw I'm trying to add a picture forgive me if I get it wrong

    So I guess the next question is, what airplane is that with the 6 blade on it?

    Can't be too many hangars in the country containing a F7U restoration also.
    I don't know the answer but I'm betting someone on here does.

    Is that the airworthy Cutlass restoration that I guess has been going on for quite some time, but I've only heard about recently? Would be cool if they were gonna have the YO-3 flying
