Wanna play ID this aircraft..........

Post  rsv1cox on Thu Jan 18, 2018 8:15 am

I used to watch this plane take-off, stand on it's tail, and go straight up.  At the time the only one able to do so.  Loved it then, love it still.



Who was it, Cox or Testors?

Think it was Wen Mac. Back in the 80's, Midwest marketed a nice-size R/C kit (.40) that I wish I'd bought. A very cool jet indeed!

One of the Marks would know for sure. I remember seeing them on ebay some months ago but never bid on one, now I wish I had.

Yes, 1940's design and tested at Patuxent River where I was stationed, but I didn't see it until at Jacksonville NAS in the mid 50's. Phased out in 1959 I think.

Known as the "Gutless Cutlass" it topped out around 600+ MPH, but on full burners it would take-off straight up.
