Curtiss Warhawk - the plane renowned for it's duty flights in China with the Flying Tigers squadron. The Warhawk was used by most Allied powers during World War II, and remained in frontline service until the end of the war.

Grumman F9F-5 Panther-The prototype Panther, piloted by test pilot Corky Meyer, first flew on 24 November 1947. American engines available at the time included the Allison J33 and Westinghouse J34, but these were not considered sufficiently reliable, so the Navy specified the imported Rolls-Royce Nene turbojet, which was also more powerful at 5,000 lb. of thrust.
