Naval Fighters # 81: Bell XFL-1 Airabonita

Naval Fighters # 81: Bell XFL-1 Airabonita
Each issue in this series describes an individual aircraft type. Development and testing are covered as well as its service history. It is illustrated with many photographs (most of them b/w, showing detail-images from inside and outside, photographs covering development / testing and cockpit close ups), reprints from original documents (flight and maintenance manuals), as well as detail drawings, which give a good impression of the structure and the assembly of the type. Each unit in which the type saw service is presented in booklets covering post war aircraft, while the focus of those presenting WWII-types (and the ones produced before) lies in showing their structure. The Bell XFL-1 Airabonita was a experimental shipboard interceptor aircraft developed for the US Navy. It was similar to and a parallel development of the land-based P-39 Airacobra, differing mainly in the use of a tail wheel undercarriage in place of the P-39's tricycle gear. It first flew on May 13, 1940. Only one prototype was manufactured BuNo 1588.
