Frank Tallman

This is the late Frank Tallman, famous American film, stunt, and airshow pilot, at the Reno air races in 1969. Tallman appeared in dozens of films and TV programs in the 1960s and 1970s, and amassed a significant collection of historical aircraft. The aircraft he is standing on is his Curtiss TP-40N, which, like much of his collection, was acquired by Florida collector Kermit Weeks following Tallman's death in 1978.

Here's another shot of the TP-40N from the same occasion.
