Goodyear GA-28A/B Convoy Fighter

The Naval VTOL Turboprop Tailsitter Project of 1950

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


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. An ideal book for modelers and enthusiasts of secret aircraft projects.
