McDonnell XP-88 20-Foot Wind Tunnel Spin Model

LAL_76064 Photos of the McDonnell XP-88 Spin Model in the Langley Tail Spin 20-foot Tunnel in July of 1952. Both swept and straight wings were tested. “The McDonnell XP-88 was a prototype originating in 1946. It was designed as a long-range fighter to escort bombers. Changes in military priorities in 1950 led to cancellation of the project.” Credit: NASA. Thanks to PaulMM (Overspin) for the tip!
