Non veni pacem mittere, sed gladium.
It amazes me to see those beautiful aircraft being tended by those old trucks... How did automotive design not kept pace with aircraft design? That is so Buck Rogers, right next to Marvin the Martian.... Crazy.....
I just spent a few hours at the Air Force Museum in Dayton. They have a Stiletto there. I remember building a model as a kid circa 1960 or so.
It is a great looking airplane. Doomed by not having powerful enough engines available.
I saw the Stiletto at Dayton too. The pilot's seat wasn't much more substantial than a lawn chair. Built for speed, not comfort.
