Lockheed XFV-1 Experimental Plane - 1952 Educational Documentary - WDTVLIVE42
The Lockheed XFV experimental prototype aircraft was built by Lockheed in the early 1950s to demonstrate the operation of a vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) aircraft. The XFV originated as a result of a proposal issued by the US Navy in 1948 for an aircraft capable of VTOL aboard platforms mounted on the afterdecks of conventional ships.
