Notes:

The Vultee BT-13 Valiant was an World War II-era basic trainer aircraft built by Vultee Aircraft for the United States Army Air Corps and later US Army Air Forces. BT-13s were used in the 1970 motion picture "Tora! Tora! Tora!". 9 planes were purchased and modified to resemble Japanese "Val" dive bombers. Some of these planes including this one are part of the Commemorative Air Force's "Tora! Tora! Tora!" squadron, which performs air battle reenactments at air shows. 5017 is owned by the 'American Airpower Heritage Fly Museum' in Midland, Texas.
