One of the most butt-ugly aircraft of the late 50`s and early 60`s.

    1. I think it looks cool, and it will take off!

    2. i think it looks cool too,
      its in the eye of the beholder

    3. I’ve gotta agree, I think it looks nice…reminds me of the p-38

    4. this is an Interceptor right?

      americans made the twin tails on interceptors back then didnt they?

    5. @KommissarKvC: Yeah. They US made one back in WW2 that was twin-tail like that, and never again. Leave it to the Britts to come up with something totally weird and half-assed.

    6. I thought half-assing was an american trait

      then again, usa is a british colony and they had to learn from somewhere

    7. @vd00d.P-38 Lightning and the P-61 Black Widow night fighter.Note the hatch at the right hand side of the cockpit.That was for the radar operator/navigator.He had no ejection seat and had to manually extract himself from it and attempt to bail out if anything went wrong.Inevitably striking the tail assembly on his way out.It took a brave man to take that job!

    8. @RSIxidor: Lol… The tails are similar. In Tailspin they used a Conwing L-16 seaplane (aka SeaDuck)…

      I love this design though. I guess I have a thing for certain flavors of ugly planes. I like this, the Seaduck, the Brooklands Aerospace Optica OA-7, the A-10… All ugly, but beautiful planes…

    9. PS. Yes, I know, the Seaduck isn’t a real plane…

    10. You are all wrong. That plane is the DC alternate dimension BatJet where the Wayne family was based out of London, not Gotham….

    11. @vd00d: Nothing half-assed about this plane. Look at those mounts under the wings. Think of the hardware or extra fuel you could put in those tail “nacelles”.

      @KommissarKvC: Orly? Been to the moon yet?
