Greetings All -

Another treasure from the Vought Archives is the V-516 FAC proposal. The 3 view has it in USAF markings - what program was this aimed at or was it possibly an unsolicited proposal?

Son of Pinto?!

Enjoy the Day! Mark

very cool find, and yes, this is at the very least an illegitimate son of Pinto ;D
PT-6 ducted fan...makes for an interesting comparison with the RFB Fantrainer
The landing gear arrangement is also VERY interesting. Reminds me of a Fairey Barracuda.
