Description

I'd never heard of any of these proposals yet, the good Mr. Zichek presents them all in an over abundance of detail. Plans, schematics, performance estimates, company artwork, and computer generated graphics all bring this subject to life.

This is the comprehensive story of some of the most radical attack aircraft ever designed to operate from an aircraft carrier. These incredible projects were developed in 1948 to equip the USS United States, an immense 65,000-ton supercarrier that was to have been the core of the Navy's nascent strategic nuclear bombardment capability.

Using the resources of the National Archives the author has efficiently mined the Record Groups for the primary sources . Unfortunately, on April 23, 1949 the USS United States was cancelled.

Using the resources of the National Archives the author has efficiently mined the Record Groups for the primary sources; the contractors submitted proposals to the BuAer specifications for a long range carrier-based heavy attack aircraft and for a long range special attack aircraft. Douglas Model 593-8 won the contract and constructed two XA3D-1 (Skywarrior) prototypes. No winner for Specification 115 was ever made.

These incredibleprojects were developed in 1948 to equip the USS United States,an immense 65,000-ton supercarrier that was to have been the coreof the Navy s nascent strategic nuclear bombardment capability. Legendaryaerospace companies such as Convair, Curtiss-Wright, Douglas,Fairchild, Lockheed, Martin, North American, Northrop, and Republicwould each submit proposals to the competitions. Varying widely inappearance, these studies ranged from Douglas s relatively small andmodern Model 593 to their unconventional Model 1186 series, whichwas inspired by the X-3 Stiletto and featured a small parasite aircraftmounted atop a gigantic missile. Recently declassified, details of thesefascinating projects are presented here for the first time.

Wow! This is some excellent stuff here! Zichek has done it again! His love of all things Naval Aviation has shown through once more. The history of the USS United States has long been poorly done but now no longer.

I'd no idea the US aviation companies could come up with such fantastic airplane concepts and designs. I'd never heard of any of these proposals yet, the good Mr. Zichek presents them all in an over abundance of detail. Plans, schematics, performance estimates, company artwork, and computer generated graphics all bring this subject to life.

For to long the whole "Luft 46" crowd has gone around as if it were only the WWII Germans that cooked up anything advanced. Well here is the proof that there was amazing creativity over on the other side of the Atlantic.

This book will appeal to aviation historians, Naval Aviation buffs, modelers, and anyone with a curiosity about the off beat and esoteric.

I highly recommend this book!

Why should only the German projects get the high end treatment?

Zichek turns in a wonderful effort: the designs are competently described and illustrated and are placed in their proper historical context.

Production values are superb with only a few minor glitches from the hit and miss editing that bites most Schiffer books. There are a few instances where text has been dropped or duplicated. One table was reproduced twice. Another was reproduced at a size making reading impossible.

But all in all, if you have an itch for aerospace "might have beens", "long shots", or "what were they thinking?" you'll be pleased with this one. You might also want to check out Zichek's American Aerospace Archive at [...] .

Background for the aircraft that would have been on the U.S.S. United States had she been completed. The aircraft are imaginative, fantastic and futuristic, yet practical and realistic in several aspects. The book provides the background of each project, feasibility and how far the real aircraft progressed. Surprisingly many aspects were incorporated in other aviation projects so all was not lost when the carrier was cancelled. This book is featured as "Volume 1" so hopefully a second one is on the horizon.

This book ties together numerous design efforts by the airframe manufacturers in their post war efforts. Once again the use of archival research by Mr. Zichek similar to his book on the F8B makes this book a real standout. Mr. Zichek is a capable author who is able to look at these proposals in their historical context and identifies not only how they were influenced by the experiences of their design teams but also by their competitors.
The good news is that this is volume one and compares well with book on the F8B. This is not a coffee table book. Mr. Zichek is as good as Gunston or Miller.

It is no secret that a large number of German aerospace experts were brought to this country after the war. The von Braun group is best known but there were others. The manned aircraft/missile combination on the cover of this excellent book incorporates a design based on the Tromsdorff D-6000 and the Mistel or piggy back concept developed during the war. The inlet diffusor is based on the work of Oswatitisch from 1944. A careful examination of other designs shows clear derivation of late-war German designs.

The author is to be greatly commended in showing how quickly and with obviously very rapid effort, the Americans went to work to counter the new threat, Russia. The shock of what was found in Germany and not knowing for certain what else the Russians found, and the Americans did not know about, likely spurred this effort. For example, the Russians captured the DFS 346 supersonic aircraft and had it test flown, suspended under the wing of an American lend-lease aircraft and released. The hand of Dr. Alexander Lippisch is evident too in the delta wing designs.

I look forward to further efforts by this author who has uncovered a hidden treasure.

Very interesting book filled with many interesting concepts. The seller also took the time to carefully pack the book for shipment.

Wow! Jared has opened a window into a stunning project mostly unknown until now. This book is superb, thoroughly well researched and with fascinating illustrations. Highly recommended to anyone with a passion for aviation, and a must-have for those involved in aerospace design. In fact, I'd be almost tempted to suggest it as a college reference book for aerospace design class. The book cover shows this is Volume 1, thereby alluding to possible future volumes. Let us hope so and encourage Jared in his marvelous effort to unveil the blueprints of a future that never was.
detailed, technically accurate and informative. beautiful presentation on glossy paper. Somewhat expensive, that's all.
