Another clue: The aircraft was not built nor designed in Great Britain.

Clue: The largest single customer for this type was the military, although almost all models extant are presently in the hands of civilian pilots.

evansb's challenge

Not many takers for your challenge Bri. Interesting photograph. It would appear to be a high wing monoplane. Are those air vents or some form of small windows port and starboard just below knee height?

Well, talk about a WAG paying off. This one may have been used before, so it'll probably go fast.

Was it made by the Canadian Car & Foundry at Fort William, Ontario ?

Curtiss A-25A Helldiver?
Got it in one. The A-25A was the Air Force version of the SB2C minus the folding wings and tail hook, I guess.

Was it made by the Canadian Car & Foundry at Fort William, Ontario ?
Good question.

Curtiss Helldriver production

Bri asked
Was it made by the Canadian Car & Foundry at Fort William, Ontario ?
Peter M Bowers states in his book Curtiss Aircraft 1907-1947 published by Putnam that:-
The US Navy foresaw interference with it's own production at Columbus,so the Army versions were built at the Curtiss St Louis plant and subsequent orders were on Army contract.
and
With the Curtiss factories being unable to meet the Navy's increased requirements for the still unproven SB2C, additional production was assigned to the Canadian branch of Fairchild Aircraft Corporation which built 300 as SBF and to the Canadian Car & Foundry Company which built 835 of an initial order for 1000 as SBWs.

Agreed, an excellent challenge.

Is it the Antonov AN-3, the upgraded, modernised and re-engined version of the venerable AN-2??

On second thoughts.......

I don't think it is the Fiat after all. No windows at the side which I think a Fiat would have.
