Bell XFL-1
I have this weakness for unappreciated "failures" (see Bell HSL and Grumman/GD F-111B below). My latest attempt to provide a nuanced and balanced account of a little known or notorious aircraft program is the one-off Bell XFL-1, a navalized version of the much more successful but frequently maligned P-39 Airacobra.

Next, I plan to write a monograph on the XF8U-3, which actually enjoys a great reputation, possibly because it was canceled after initial envelope expansion and before its development was complete and operational evaluation had been accomplished.

Dear French understanding members,

in the latest issue, April 2012, of Le Fana De L'Aviation Magazine there is an article about the Bell XFL-1 Ariabonita by Tommy Thomason.
