Back in the fifties when the Air Force was testing some really weird birds, along came the Goblin - protection for the mother bird (s), it was launched from a trapeze under the belly, went out and did its thing then returned to recapture same trapeze.  Needless to say, it never became front-line.

Actually it was the late 40s, just a turrible idea. Turrible, McDonnell, turrible! But I loved it when I was a kid. :)

This is neat OND but that second one, it looks weird with the angle, can you post more of it at different angles?

By the way I went to those beautiful hills near EGNC and it was stunning!

Not much more to it Jack - an engine nacelle with wings, tail feathers and a canopy.

That's the landing skid in the middle. I'm not sure what the pylons are doing on the lower wings, don't remember it carrying drop tanks or rockets?
