At left, probably a Convair C-131 Samaritan. At right two unidentified tails, one printed by registration N785CP (or N765CP ?).
Named Vindicator bombers by the headquaters.
Later seen as a negative shot. First, the second prototype s/n 50661.
Then a craft in the colors of the USAF.
Shown as a negative picture.
The crew of a Convair B-58 was seated in tandem in three different cockpits. But the movie show them in a single one like in a Stratofortress.
If the following Delta is not a F-102, it's a F-106 !
Another aircraft display through a negative process.
Perhaps Sparrow I's during tests on a Douglas F3D Skyknight in the early 1950s ?
Another shot used flipped.
Designation from 1962 of the F9F-8. Negative and inverted shot.
