Looks like Su-2 Dive bomber.

 

Edit: Then again, there's a RAF roundel on the plane at the back. Which I guess it's a boomerang?

Should be. You can follow the rivet design from this pic.

At least it returns back to its starting point.

Exactly.

 

 

Alrighty, back to the topic!

Even though we answered the guess.

It is indeed a Boomerang. Specifically, it is a prototype Boomerang fitted with a Fw190 style cooling fan.

 

I found the picture while digging through the National Archives of Australia. It was in a report on how the fan affected the cooling of the engine under standard and tropical conditions.

 

Edit: Also, the plane in the background is an Avro Anson.
