National Museum of the US Air Force. The Goblin (nicknamed "The Flying Egg") was designed as a parasite fighter which would be lowered and launched from a B-36 mother ship. Interestingly, the Goblin was never actually carried by a B-36; all the tests were done with a modified B-29. This is the first of only two Goblins produced.
