This book signals a radical departure from Ginter Books Naval Fighters Series. Previously, Army/Air Force planes were only covered when the aircraft was also in service with the Navy (Naval Fighters # 5 North American T-28 Trojan, NF# 8 Lockheed C-121 Constellation. NF #11 Grumman HU-16 Albatross, & NF #14 Convair T-29/C-131 series). Although hookless, there were many unusual post-war/early fifties Air Force developmental aircraft too. This is the story of arguably the most innovative and potentially the most promising of these development airplanes.
