Northrop's contender for the 1966 A-X programme which sought an A-1 type replacement close air support jet aircraft, the YA-9A was just beaten by Fairchild's A-10A. The margin was close, the winner was just slightly more maintainable and had better survivability. Sadly the price of failure is a dusty spot in a museum.
