Naval Fighters # 94:  Chance Vought F7U1 Cutlass
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. Illustrated throughout with contemporary photographs, detail images, excerpts from original drawings and scale drawings. .

In 1946, the Navy embarked on the development of the Chance Vought F7U-1 Cutlass, a high-performance, carrier-based jet fighter that would be equal, if not superior, to any land-based fighter. It was tailless for compactness and weight reduction and incorporated afterburning jet engines for transonic speed performance and unparalleled rate of climb. This is a detailed account of how its bright promise went unrealized because the technology required to fulfill it was not yet mature. More than 200 pictures, many not previously published, and almost 70 illustrations, most created for this monograph by the author, augment the 44,000 words of text.
