    Wow! What's going on in this picture? It does not look like a good day for the pilot.

    Totally. Collapsed nosegear, at least one detached fuel store evident behind. The Attitude of the aircraft is normally very nose high, so this is ms from slamming into the deck. Hopefully the in-progress ejection was successful.

    14th July 1955, LCDR Jay T. Alkire, Killed in crash. This posted photo looks phenomenal. The next photo is less promising…


    Thanks for sharing. I was not previously familiar with this platform. I appreciate the challenges you present to me to learn more.

    Yeah the F7U Gutless Cutlass. It's not a surprise to see the front gear collapse given the length of the poor thing.

    +Eric Poe Thanks for posting that link.

    +Wayne Moyer yep that rare thing, a good looking plane that was not very good

    Ah, a diorama. Makes much more sense. I was admittedly puzzled by the visual aesthetics and resolution for its vintage. Well, hopefully the link to Cutlass ejections helps spread the word on this beast's history. Apparently over a third of them crashed. And how about that nose gear! Puts the pilot at 14 feet!? That's crazy!!

    +Jim K You know the old saying. If it looks right the it must fly horribly.
