Remark Photographer
134806 (cn 10400) Strongly influenced by studies made by Alexander Lippisch which resulted in the Me163 Komet, the Douglas Skyray was the U.S. Navy's first seaborne delta wing fighter. Nicknamed the 'Ford' (from it's F4D designation) the type took the world absolute speed record in October 1953. This example deserves her place in this magnificent museum.
