AIRCRAFT

WEIRD AND WONDERFUL AIRCRAFT

CONVAIR XFY1 POGO

Vertical Flight has long been a dream of aviation designers, but has always been a challenge. It requires an immense amount of power to get off the ground without the benefit of wings, and it was only in the years after World War II that engines of enough power became available; it was then that some truly strange aircraft took to the skies, most notably the Convair XFY1 “Pogo” . The XFY1 was a tail-sitter using the most powerful turboprop available in the Western world
