Lee, in the second shot, taken from the starboard side:

 

Is that Bob Russell's Fw 190A-8?

 

Looking at it in the background, I was struck by how bizarre the cowling looked.  Almost like a La-5.

 

And then I found this article, which said that "Russell fitted it with the four bladed propeller, hub, engine and modified cowling from a Tupolev TU-2 bomber."

If that is the "Russell" Focke-Wulf, are there any plans to return it to it's original specifications?
