XV-1 Convertiplane in Bldg 42

XV-1 4aA couple of photos I took of the XV-1 Convertiplane while it was stored in Bldg 42 Flight Test Hanger in 1963 before being sent to the Smithsonian. I had just started at McDonnell Aircraft and had no idea what this craft was; but, I had to take a couple of photos of it! (No, I wasn’t supposed to be taking photos, hence only these four!) Low quality photos; but, I guarantee that you won’t see any others of this aircraft while is was stored.
