    Apparently they were used by all of the above countries. A number of them survive in foreign museums and saw service at least into the seventies. The only American plane that saw service in more counties would be the AT-6 Texan.

    Exactly - And I was surprised too - I had thought that the Mustang and Spitfire were the main WW2 planes that were used widely post-war... But I guess that there was a lot of selling-off going on of all sorts, and with the jet fighter coming along, there was a lot of incentive for bargain bucket unloading of stock...
