Description

In the 1950s, Killer Rays were lethal weapons seen strictly in science fiction movies. To an enemy intruder of U.S. airspace at the time, the sight of batwing Douglas Skyrays climbing into the stratosphere to attack and destroy their foe would have indeed seemed like science fiction. However, in 1955, it was a scientific fact that this jet-powered delta-wing interceptor was about to become the U.S. Navy’s latest lethal weapon.

 

Author and former Navy JAG Mark Frankel has accessed the wealth of Skyray photos, artwork, engineering drawings, and related material including actual transcripts of conversations with Chief Engineer Ed Heinemann. Covering development of the F4D Skyray from a mock-up to prototype, flight testing, and operational deployment, this book brings you the inside story of how problems with the Westinghouse J40 turbojet nearly cost the F4D program and how the Pratt & Whitney J57 saved it.

 

This book features detailed documentation of Skyray production, world speed and time-to-climb records, operational F4D units, and the advanced supersonic F5D Skylancer. The use of never-before-seen photos and artwork completes this story of the world’s first carrier-based jet interceptor.
