Are you looking to fix your credit, in order to qualify for better rates:? I recommend JERRYLINK CREDIT GROUP. They're fast, reliable and secure.

Do you need your credit fixed in order to qualify for a loan, I recommend 760Plus Credit score. They helped me achieve my long term dream of becoming a home owner. I think they are the best right now; they are highly rated in many credit forums. You can reach out to them today for any credit related issues, thank me later. Contact them via mail at 760pluscreditscore at gmail dot com.

This airplane had one other insurmountable problem: a poor choice of engines. The Continental IX-1430 engine delivered a lower power-to-weight ratio than either the contemporary Allison V-1710 or the Rolls-Royce Merlin. That was the main reason why the engine was never placed into mass production. McDonnell claimed that this plane would exceed 470 mph, while it actually barely exceeded 400. They might have completely re-designed the plane to take different engines, but by that time the Army Air Force nobody no longer really cared.

Its quite possible that all that blending contributed to overall drag.It certainly caused disturbed airflow over the tail surfaces to the extent that test pilots refused to spin it.Just looking at the 3 view is enough to tell you that its short of fin area.all that side area in front of the c/g and c/p needs a large emphenage.
Design of the nacelles was a problem for the prototype mossie.
As for stealth no. Same as the Horten concept, designers were seeking goals other than radar invisibility.

That top picture of the "Moonbat" may very well be the most beautiful black and white picture of an airplane I've ever seen.It captures all the spiritual essence of flight.

BACK IN 1955 A SCALE MODEL U-CONTROL APPROX. 50" WING SPAN
WAS BUILT BY FLOYD BOGGS IN CALIF.
WISH I HAD THE PLANS FOR RC.

This was an intriguing looking aircraft. Resembles an even faster american-built Mosquito. Too bad it was never developed

If anyone could direct me to a good, accurate source of information on this aircraft, including dimensions, cross-sections, etc, it would be much appreciated. I am trying to develop plans for an electric powered R/C model.

I agree with Speedy. There is no need for vulgarity on this site. Go to the porno sites for that!!! The XP-67 was in reality the first aircraft that employed Stealth Technology with its design. This plane is an important part of our Aviation History. I hope to do an R/C Model of this plan one day soon. Long Live Aviation!!!!

A comment like that is obviously an Obozo voter!
And a Reid and Pelosi bootlicker.


John C Bontempo, e-mail, 31.12.2009 21:35

I think that you would be est advised to periodically check you comments like the one above Aero-Fox!


Speedy, e-mail, 24.04.2009 11:56

Why do vulgar fools have to show up every where these days?

This aircraft had a unique exhaust-angling system designed to channel the exhaust at high speed, using it to increase thrust. The system did not work as planned, and the airframe was unstable to begin with...
