The second part of a two volume work examining the Lockheed Model L-200 Convoy Fighter of 1950, which led to the XFV-1 Salmon turboprop tailsitter naval aircraft. It was one of five submissions to the US Navy's Convoy Fighter competition, which called for a high performance turboprop VTOL fighter to protect convoy vessels from attack by enemy aircraft. Major subjects include various unusual takeoff and landing concepts; the L-200-2 stripped full-scale prototype vs. the L-200-5 subscale prototype; NACA wind tunnel and flying model tests; the mock-up conference; and various related studies done for the USAF. This full color 72 page book features 70 images, including rare photos, detailed blueprints, vintage artist's impressions, and beautiful color profiles. Part 1 is still available from bookstores worldwide, along with previous volumes on the Convair, Goodyear, Martin, and Northrop proposals submitted to the Convoy Fighter Competition of 1950.
