“The last complete aircraft to be built by Convair was the Model 48 Charger. The Navy had issued a requirement for a new counter-insurgency aircraft. Convair proceeded with the manufacturing of a prototype. By the time it rolled out of the factory on September 29, 1964, the navy had decided on another design. However, the Army and the Marines preferred the Charger, so a flight test contract was awarded. Before a scheduled “fly off” could take place, the Model 48 was destroyed during a test flight by a navy pilot; another example was not built. Accident report” From Greg Bishop
