Here's a shot I haven't seen before of the unarmed XP-46A (40-3054) doing what looks like a high-speed taxi test. -SP

I found these XP-46 era Curtiss test pilots but I do not which one was the pilot:
Henry Lloyd Child
Barton Travers "Red" Hulse
Everett Edward "Ed" Elliot
Herbert O. Fisher
William O. "Bill" Webster
Robert W. "Bob" Fausel

Has anyone read of an explanation for why some of the pictures show the inboard landing gear doors open when they should be closed?
