I think the turboprop is a Westland Wyvern.

As to the vintage pusher bipe, is it a Voisin?

Regarding the CG-4a nose, there was a CG4a AND a C-47 on display in a dome at Mere St. Eglise (circa 1990). It was right near the church the paratrooper got caught on (Red Buttons (?) in "The Longest Day").

Still there last year and that dome of course is a open parachute shaped museum built on the location of the burning house in the movie. And the church still has a dummy hanging from the steeple in a parachute. Great place. There is a picture of the original trooper visiting there (in 64 I think it was) on a plaque in the square. It was Pvt John Steele and he died in 1969
