9780692504338: Goodyear GA-28A/B Convoy Fighter: The Naval VTOL Turboprop Tailsitter Project of 1950

A detailed overview of the Goodyear Aircraft Corporation GA-28A/B, one of the submissions to the US Navy convoy fighter competition of 1950, which ultimately produced the Convair XFY-1 and Lockheed XFV-1 VTOL aircraft. The GA-28A was a three-quarter scale prototype of the convoy fighter, while the GA-28B was the full scale design armed with four 20 mm cannon. Both were VTOL tailsitters powered by turboprop engines and featured a semi-delta, semi-midwing configuration with triple vertical tail surfaces. The aircraft also had unusual landing gear which permitted either conventional or vertical landing and takeoff. Features 40 illustrations, including detailed schematics, artist's impressions, and speculative color profiles of these unorthodox aircraft designs. Color printing throughout, with a full color glossy cover.

"If you're an aviation enthusiast or modeler that enjoys looking at the 'what-if' side of aviation, this monograph is worth adding to your library!"--Cybermodeler.com.

"If you enjoy experimental types then this book will feed your need!"-Scale Aviation Modeller International

"This interesting book describes how the concept would operate and provides diagrams and sketches of GA-28 proposals. "-Model Airplane International
