Not a very pretty airplane.

Much prettier!

OK. On the bench:

Way too much to build in one lifetime...

Yep, that's just what it looked like when I saw it in 1966 at Ontario.  That looks like Ontario, too.

I went back in 68 or 69, and all the airplanes were gone.  I asked an airport worker where they had gone and he said "we made them get all that junk off the field".Super Angry

In that case, I saw that aircraft there at the Kalamazoo Air Zoo 3-4 years back. It hangs over the admissions desk in the front. it is about the first thing you see as you walk in. very nice, and nice looking build of the Q.

That's come out really nicely John. Good looking aircraft too. Wonder how it would have gone in combat?
