Hmm, at first I thought it was a Lancair however the lines of the canopy just doesn't seem right, but maybe it's not a Legacy but a smaller model 320 or 260?

My first thought as well, but I don't believe any of the Lancair's ever had trailing link main gear.  And the wing/fuselage fairing at the trailing edge isn't right either.

Just to make it official, I found out Fabo's plane is a WT-9 and he confirmed in the chat. Next plane please :)

Can someone ID these at Boise Gowen Airport?

I think there's a Delta Dart there and maybe a Thunderstreak or whatever it's called in the corner but I'm not sure if those two are Double Uglies (Phantom II's) or Harriers? Mary said she hasn't been in the southpart of the airport for 17 years so she can't say (from the chat).

Based on the size and straight wings I'm guessing the one in the lower left corner is a P-80, or T-33.
