The vertical stabilizer is of the Curtiss-Wright P-40 type. Interesting this type is designed with a positive dihedral where some of the commercial aircraft use a negative dihedral. Prop image suggests forward movement although wheel chocks are in place. Optical illision. Dimitry should have moved the TEXACO oil drum before taking the shot to preserve the "Soviet" backdrop. "Great Shot !"
