These are P-36's, not P-26's.

Kevin (above):
Actually, I think everybody’s right. I think the airplane facing the camera on the left and the one facing away from the camera on the right are P-26 Peashooters based on the engine configuration. The airplane behind them on the left appears to be a P-36 Hawk based on the canopy arrangement. The airplane in the far rear facing away from the camera (if that even is an airplane) looks like a P-40 Warhawk based on the in-line engine.
