What type is that? The nearest I can get is B-26, but that
had a round fuselage.

Douglas Boston (RAF name) or Havoc (USAAF name). The girl on the step-stool
on the lower right is doing something inside the section of the nose where
the bow gunpods would be mounted. Single or twin guns, .30, .303, or .50,
depending on service and model. The RAF (and the Free French in RAF service)
used them for very low-level daylight cross-channel raids. Look up in
particular 342 (Lorraine) Squadron, 2 Group, 2nd Tactical Air Force.
http://www.raf.mod.uk/history_old/h342.html has a pic of a Boston III with
the .50 gunpod.

As a ten year-old boy, I remember visiting Lambert Field in St. Louis,
MO and watching a flight of six Bostons on their way to England from San
Diego make a fuel stop in 1940. They were already painted in RAF
markings and were quite impressive to me at my age. That same day, my
father lifted me up and put me in a brand new model 17 Beechcraft his
buddy had just bought. Of course, I fell in love with that plane and
the owner. Lacking four days of being 54 years later, I laid my hands
on that same identical aircraft at the Staggerwing museum in Tullahoma,
Tennessee. Needless to say, it gave me indescribable feelings.
It truly is a small world.
