9780942612349: Naval Fighters Number Thirty-Four Convair XP5Y-1 & R3Y-1/-2 Tradewind

On 20 December 1944, the industry was asked to enter a design competition for a 105,000 pound patrol boat powered by four Pratt & Whitney R-2800 radials. In January 1945, the proposal was amended to include anti-shipping, anti-submarine, and air-search and rescue. Ultimately, the project was cancelled when the submitted designs were deemed marginally superior to existing aircraft. The concept was resurrected on 27 December 1945 in the form of a 165,000 pound flying boat with improved hull design and four turboprop engines to significantly improve performance.

Descrizione libro Ginter Books, United States, 1997. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.The Tradewind was one of the largest operational flying boats ever built. The 124,000 lb. XP5Y-1 was ordered in August 1946 and was to be powered by four Allison XT-40 six-bladed, counter-rotating turbo-prop engines. The aircraft utilized the latest hull design concepts which produced a long and sleek looking aircraft. Due to engine development problems, the first flight was delayed to April 18, 1950. Besides the XP5Y-1, six R3Y-1 and five R3Y-2 transport aircraft were built. The first six aircraft had side cargo doors while the last five were built as bow-loaders. The bow-loaders increased the personnel load from 80 to 103 in the troop transport mode, and as an air ambulance, the litters were increased from 72 with 8 attendants to 92 with 12 attendants. The loading deck area was 88 feet long and 9 feet wide. The aircraft were primarily used on the Alameda to Hawaii run in 1956 were converted into aerial tankers with four drogue and reel assemblies. The aircraft were operated until April 16, 1958. Codice libro della libreria AAV9780942612349
