It was not untill the advent of computer controlled fly by wire that canards became a practical fighter aircraft. They dont turn tightly on the edge of the stall. Even with its problems of lateral stability solved this project was destined to fail as a fighter. Interceptor, maybe. High altitude heavy bomber,possibly.

The reason it was abandoned was its rear mounted engines had trouble keeping cool

Fitted with a jet it would have been a FIGHTER

A step foward and a step back at the same time.
If this aircraft had been fully researched, it would make a formidable aircraft, butunfortunatly, a war made it impossible. Still, a great aircraft.

Uh, Mr. Raven.....the planes share a similar configuration but are obviously not of the same lineage.

The Japanese copied it. To see what I mean look up J7W1 Shinden on yahoo.com

This plane was jokingly dubbed the "Ass-ender", a somewhat appropriate name.

The final Ascender has been beautifully restored for the NASM by the Kalamazoo Air Zoo restroation department. It is quite a site to see up close. Worth the trip alone, but also part of and excellent collection of mostly flight worthy aircraft!

I have been looking for information about the air show at Wright Field that day. I was in attendance with my parents. I was 7 years old then, this is the first information I have found after years of searching.
