I took a ton of photos at the Monroe, NC Warriors and Warbirds event this past weekend. I decided to see how these old birds might look in an old photo...
These aircraft were modified (they are actually T-6's) for the making of the movie Tora, Tora, Tora in the late 60's. It's amazing what a little sheet metal can do.

They also used Vultee BT-13 Valiants such as this one to convert to the fixed landing gear aircraft like the one in the foreground of your shots.

The BT-13 was used to duplicate the Japanese Aichi D3A dive bomber, allied code name "Val," and the T-6's were used to replicate the Mitsubishi A6M Zero ("Zeke").
