Filmed at Eagle Field in California.

That one can be seen at this point in the episode. Looks like a fiberglass replica.

Windscreen looks like BT-13; so does the canopy with some modifications; rest looks a bit long for a P-40?

This looks like a leftover mockup from the movie Pearl Harbor - I remember the droopy wings from other photos:
