Example text

It had a trycycle landing gear, unlike anything in our arsenal except the P-38. And the cockpit was more like a car’s, with a door instead of a swing-up or sliding canopy, and windows that actually rolled up and down with a crank. ” Was it a tumbler? The experience of 2nd Lt. Harvey Mace, 357th Fighter Group: “It was decided by somebody that a good training exercise would be to have all three squadrons engage in one huge dogfight. We had this big melee going and I was hot on the tail of an opponent when he pulled up into a loop.

While not planned as a fighter, the NA A-36 experienced air combat on many occasions and claims for 101 enemy aircraft destroyed in the air were registered by its pilots. A total of 177 A-36s were lost to enemy action. In April 1942 Rolls-Royce test pilot Ronnie Harker was invited by the RAF to fly the Mustang I up at Duxford near Cambridge. Harker was impressed by the handling and the fuel capacity of the American fighter, as well as the positioning of the guns in the wing, and he reported favourably to the RAF Air Fighting Development Unit on the general performance of the plane.

Ray Wagner, author of Mustang Designer Ed Schmued merged his earlier fighter concepts with a new laminar-flow airfoil to shape the NA-73, as the new plane was designated, and final British approval was given for the purchase of 320 of the planes in that Battle of Britain summer. He spread the design assignment among several of his specialized groups, estimating that one hundred days would be needed to build the first experimental example. The British had required North American to have the plane flight-tested, de-bugged, and in full production within one year, but around the company, serious concerns were surfacing about the new wing and how it might perform.
