Awesome piece of info! Thanks for sharing. Any source, maybe?Tailspin Turtle said:The basic model number for the F2H was 24. The design/study letters went up through at least AR but the partial list I have doesn't tie any of the MAC letter designations to the Navy designations.
This being said, pages 150 to 159 of the original document are still missing...Stargazer2006 said:Cool! Glad Mark finally managed to get the COMPLETE document (he had only parts of it last time around).
In late 1947, McDonnell proposed a set of F2H-1 swept-wing Banshee derivatives to the Navy, giving them unofficial designations of XF2H-2/3/4/5. The wing was similar to the XF-88's. Note that it has the canopy of the F2H-1 prototype. There are no Model numbers or drawing numbers on the material I have, so I can't verify that this was the XF2H-5 listed on this document.Mark Nankivil said:Greetings All -
Here's a January, 1966 list tying drawing numbers to Model numbers at McDonnell Aircraft.
Interesting to see the XF2H-5 listed.
Enjoy the Day! Mark
