Re: I think the Vought V-173 was first
In reply to Cogset, 5 months ago

Of course, it had a tail, so if you are excluding devices with any sort of tail, the V-173 would be excluded. Very cool design though, needed next to no runway to take off and would surpass the Corsairs and P-51s in speed.

The fighter version, xf5u, taxied but never took off as the program was canned do to the emergence of jets. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vought_XF5U
