New view of Cutlass | Aviation Week, June 6, 1949


Latest flight photo of the chance Vought Cutlass (XF7U) twin jet Navy fighter shows clearly the twin sweptback vertical fins located midway along the span of each wing. Experimental models of the Cutlass are still in the final stages of flight testing but Chance Vought plant at Dallas is fabricating parts for production of an initial order of 19 F7U-1s for the Navy.
