Lockheed 245 Trainer

2010/01/31: Remarks by Jack Fisher: "When I worked at Lockheed in the late 1950s I was responsible for the aerodynamics of the T2V-1. This was a modification of the T-bird to take-off and land on aircraft carriers to train pilots for the Navy. The aircraft wing was equipped with boundary layer control and leading edge slats to lower takeoff and landing speeds." Additional photo (site files), read also the remarks in photo 9897.
