Looks like a Whitman Tailwind or similar...

Time to go home though so will search tomorrow if it's still unidentified.

The glider is the Slingsby Hengist
The ugly French job is the SNCASE Grognard circa 1950.
Probably not competitive to the Mig or Sabre

136 is the Convair XFY-1, the only turboprop VTO fighter design to demonstrate the full vertical takeoff, convert to horizontal flight and vertical landing cycle. The competing Lockheed XFV-1 did its flight tests with an enormous fixed landing gear so it could take off in the horizontal position with horizontal to vertical transitions done only in flight away from the ground.

Mystery 137


This one never saw active duty but was ground breaking at the time it was created. Giving a hint with the color pic. Thought the twin side-by-side canopies were very cool looking.

That looks like more pictures of the XB-43. From the front, it could be the XB-42 but I see what looks to be a pair of air intakes high on the fuselage sides which would make this the XB-43. The first few Douglas C-74 Globemasters also had the "bug-eye" canopies. While its a nice low drag, high outside visibility set-up, it was discontinued due to poor communications between pilot and co-pilot.

(Parasol monoplane from 1920's) looks like a Thomas Morse MB-7.

Here's another Observation plane with a rather large rudder.
