The McDonnell XF-85 Goblin was a parasite fighter – it was designed to be carried in the bomb bay of a B-36. It had no undercarriage and was hung from a hook which retracted into the nose of the Goblin. The extended range of the B-36 meant that it would be flying beyong the range of fighters that could defend it, so the idea was to carry a fighter onboard.

America’s own ‘foo fighter’ first flew on 22 July 1948

    Funky design. I’d buy one but the image is just a bit too small on the shirt.

  • The fighter itself was very small –
    have unhooked one for you
