Navy Evaluation of Bell YP-59A

A very poor copy of the Navy TRD No PTR-1106 report on YP-59A Airplanes – Report on Jet Wake Characteristics.

Two YP-59A Airacomets (42-108778 and 42-100779) were delivered to the U.S. Navy where they were evaluated, but were quickly found completely unsuitable for carrier operations. Credit: Craig Kaston via Tommy Thomason

Glad to see that the USN found some use for the Brewster SB2A!
