P-47 Thunderbolt Mockup

This P-47 is a movie prop in front of an art school in West Palm Beach, Florida. It was formerly located on a pedestal along with an F4U Corsair in front of a restaurant by the runway of West Palm Beach Airport. They were blown and torn to pieces by a hurricane and I guess they gave the P-47 to the school. Photo by Pete Alvarez
