I noticed this in a 1939 Look magazine. The problem was....from another source... it was an overload test failure. And... it was put back together again apparently and just strengthened a bit.

Their idea for the first tilt-rotor didn't quite work as hoped...... :lol:


Peace is that brief, quiet moment in history.......... when everybody stands around reloading.
