"There are a few new questions raised by fresh photos. One is - what was going on with those canopies. The British 339E had a very distinctive canopy, to British specs. I've seen it appear on one late-build Dutch 339-23, but figured it was just a 'let's get rid of spare parts' kind of thing. Now Rich has turned up a photo of a British canopy on an F2A-3 (page 54) which is kind of bizarre. Another surprise was Brewster photos referring to an aircraft as the 'XF2A-3', something not reflected in naval Bureau Number listings. Apparently, this designation was used for the single aircraft eventually rebuilt (and designated) as the XF2A-4, with a pressurized cabin.
