Blast from the past....Vought V-507

This blast from the past is wrapped up in a bit of internet mystery.  Some are saying that this is an early competitor for the advanced interceptor contest that eventually became the F-14.

Others are saying that Vought didn't build it but that they simply acquired it with the buy of Ling Temco (I didn't even know that company existed, never mind whether its true or not).

Either way it was gonna be a sleek, fighter that promised nice speed and an amazing weapons load (if they could get it to work).  Consider it an early "Payloads Over Platforms" concept that didn't get past the mock up stage.

TACAIR NETWORK has the best info on this fighter if you're interested!
