UPDATE: Couple of very nice commentors say this plane is a P51 Mustang. Here is a photo of Chuck Yeager's "Glamourous Glen III". I agree, this plane appears to be the same model/make.
Donald has a good post over at the 2blowhards' joint. Reminded me of this photo of my dad taken around 1949 in Japan, I believe, where he was stationed while serving in the Army Air Force. I was hoping someone might have more information regarding the plane he is standing on. (Clicking on the photo will enlarge for better viewing.)
In fact, I need to do my own investigation regarding his military service as I know very little about it. Though he was too young to fight in WWII, he was part of the clean up in Japan. He talked a little about it now and then, but I am embarrassed to say I don't even know his unit name, etc. Now, sadly, it is too late to ask him personally - he died of lung cancer in 2000.
