    By the time the F6F Hellcat was well into production, Grumman had already begun developing a design that can replace the fighter plane. It was in 1943 when the company started to consider better avionics and a stronger airframe than the Hellcat. The project gained momentum when Grumman chief test pilot Bob Hall had a chance to fly a Focke-Wulf FW-190 and relayed the avionic information he gathered to the company�s design team. Using the data, the Design 58 concept plane was drafted. It was a...

      The O-1 Bird Dog was the United States Army�s response to the need for an aircraft during World War II that can perform an incredible complexity of duties from artillery fire to liaison duties.

          The E-2 Cub by Taylor Aircraft can be considered as the earliest ancestor of the Piper J-3 Cub. As the E-2 was an aircraft created to boost the public�s interest in aviation, it was relatively cheap compared to its contemporaries. During the later months of 1930, Taylor Aircraft declared bankruptcy, which led to a change in ownership to William Piper. Thus when Walter Jamouneau (an employee) decided to trick out an E-2 during his spare time, the resulting design carried the name �Piper�...
