I'm confused ... :-|

The nose, wheel bays and the turboprop took me to the Douglas C-132.

but wikipedia says it was just a concept ... :-[

As James said, you're damn close.
Carrying Thor missiles wasn't just a concept, it was a necessity ;)

Ok All,

Here's another.  :)


I guess this one was a stumper  :)

It's a The Gallaudet D-4 … it was an unusual biplane designed and built by Gallaudet Aircraft Company for the United States Navy. It was powered by a Liberty L-12 engine buried within the fuselage which turned a large, four-bladed propeller attached to a ring around the center fuselage. Only two were constructed, with the second being accepted by the Navy for service as an observation aircraft.

A Vought F8U-3 Crusader III during flight testing. The under-fuselage fins folded up into a horizontal position for take off and landing.  :)

A Vought F8U-3 Crusader III
"The best airplane we ever canceled".
The F8U-3 went farther, faster, it turned better, cost less, weighed less, and it would go as far on internal fuel as the F4H-1 could go with a 600-gallon external fuel tank - and it was a 25 percent cheaper than the F4H.

Okay!

this is messing up a bit ... :-[

James: Of course we like stories and more about disasters.  :o

DHumphrey: we'll give it to you for valid even if you miss the letter X ... it's the XF8U-3-Crusader-III. Your turn now. ;)



Mike: Why would they have canceled it being so advantageous, cheap, light and maneuverable? :-|
Will it be because of the ugly of his upturned nose and nasty mouth? o_O
Or for some kind of dark negotiated to buy something worse and more expensive? o_O
(We know that this is USA weakness as can be seen in a plane that is frecuently here)

Sorry for the delay ...
It is for living in the ass of the world and having tons of work, despite the fact that today is a national holiday. ;D
