Eh, the whole thing wasn't anywhere near as crazy as you might think. Notice that by the time the project was canned, most of the problems had already been worked out. Besides, as a general rule, it is mankind's craziest ideas that produce the most impressive results. A heavier-than-air machine, flying on its own power? Only in 1902...CptHobbes said:As I said, only in 1955...

The F102 was the triangular winged Delta-Dart
The F104 was the improved model Delta-Dagger

Also, there is no F-1
The first "F" plane was the F4F Wildcat built by Grumman for the navy in 1940
I'm not entirely sure how you came up with this idea - the F4F Wildcat, as its designation indicates, was the fourth Grumman fighter built for the Navy. So, not only were there three other Grumman fighters before it, but there was also a variety of others - and that's just in the Navy.Sylvester said:The first "F" plane was the F4F Wildcat built by Grumman for the navy in 1940
