I'd say it's a Handley Page Heyford. No idea about the fighter, though . . .

From the little bit I've read, it was made to haul heavy loads out of rough, short strips.....   ::thinking::

I agree with Airtac.  That's a Dornier DO-28 Skyservant.  Supposed to be a decent airplane, but that's only reading a few of my OLD aviation reviews.
"You call this bad? I'll tell you what bad is....Bad is passing test depth at 80 feet per second with a thirty degree down bubble. Compared to that, this is a walk in the park.
