As for the first plane.....no idea. :?

The second aircraft is a Grumman C-1A Trader. It's actually 136792, the C-1A that served as the feasibility prototype for the planned WF-2, aka the Grumman E-1B Tracer. That explains the twin tail configuration. After the tests were completed, the aircraft's radome was removed and the aircraft became part of the Overhaul and Repair Department at NAS Quonset Point. The aircraft is currently in the care of the Quonset Point Air Museum.

I was thinking a Maine 8-poster bed myself... Is it an Aeroplane if it has never properly flown?
