Item #: AXF5U -

    Vought AF5U Flying Pancake by TMC Pacific ModelworksItem Number: AXF5USpan: 14 " Length: 12 " The brainchild of Charles H. Zimmerman, the F5U was intended to perform well as a fighter plane while being able to remain in flight at extremely low airspeed, making it easier to operate from carriers. The F5U's unusual appearance owed to a very low aspect ratio wing without a fuselage, which resulted in something looking like a flying saucer. This shape, combined with powerful engines driving large...

      The Bell X-1 is a rocket plane manufactured by Bell Aircraft and was originally designated as the XS-1. The Bell X-1 was the first aircraft to exceed the speed of sound in controlled, level flight. It was primarily used by the United States Air Force and NACA (now NASA).The Bell X-1 took its place in history on October 14, 1947 as the first aircraft to break the " sound barrier " . The recorded speed was Mach 1.015 or 670 mph at an altitude of 42,000 ft. The " plane " was flown by chief...

        Designed after the Messerschmitt P. 1101 airplane, the Bell X-5 was the first aircraft in the world to have the capability of varying the sweepback of its wings in flight. This was the major difference of the Bell X-5 from the Messerschmitt P. 1101, the latter could only vary its sweep while on the ground. It was a proof of concept, the main reason for designing and developing the Bell X-5 was to prove that a higher maximum speed could be achieved by increasing the sweepback of an airplane's...

        Item #: CX5T -

          The Bell X-5 was the first aircraft capable of changing the sweep of its wings in flight, it had three sweep positions: 20_, 40_ and 60_. It was inspired by the untested wartime P.1101 design of the German Messerschmitt company. In contrast with the German design which could only be adjusted on the ground, the Bell engineers devised a system of electric motors to adjust the sweep in flight. Two X-5s were built; between the two almost 200 flights were made at speeds up to Mach 0.9 and altitudes...

            The D-558-1 Skystreak was a single-engine jet research aircraft of the 1940s. It was designed in 1945 by the Douglas Aircraft Company for the U.S. Navy Bureau of Aeronautics. As originally envisioned, there would be three phases to the D558 program: a jet-powered airplane, a mixed rocket/jet-powered configuration, and a design and mockup of a combat aircraft. A contract for design and construction of six D558-1 aircraft for the first phase was issued in June 1945. Construction of the first...

              The D-558-2 Skyrocket was a rocket and jet-powered supersonic research aircraft built by the Douglas Aircraft Company for the United States Navy. This aircraft was part of the 2nd phase of a three-phase program; the first phase was the D-558-1, and the project was cancelled before the third phase could be carried out. The goals of the program were to investigate the characteristics of swept-wing aircraft at transonic and supersonic speeds with particular attention to pitch-up, a problem...

She is named after the British HMS Endeavour, the ship which took Captain James Cook on his first voyage of discovery (1768_1771). This is why the name is spelled in the British English manner, rather than the American English ("Endeavor"). Endeavour was named through a national competition involving students in elementary and secondary schools. Endeavour was the most popular entry, accounting for almost one-third of the...
