The meager ad revenue generated by this site isn't sufficient to cover the annual cost of running the server, and we who manage it have never made money from it.

(Synopsis needed)


Season One

Convair F2Y Sea Dart

Ep. 1.01 Sixty Feet Below
On 4 November 1954, Convair YF2Y-1 Sea Dart, BuNo 135762, disintegrated in midair over San Diego Bay killing Charles E. Richbourg.
In this episode, the pilot (Jim Cock) is just prisonner of the sunk aircraft (named XF-190).
The experimental aircraft is played by XF2Y-1 prototype (BuNo 137634) with its original J-34 engines and twin ski (retracted here).

BuNo 137634 Convair XF2Y-1 Sea Dart.
BuNo 137634 Convair XF2Y-1 Sea Dart.

Sea Darts have a twin ski basic configuration but the first protytpe was upgraded at the end of 1954 with new J-46 engines and a large single ski. It's probably this one seen in the landing accident scene.

Close ups on the cockpit doesn't display the Sea Dart's "V" windshield (common with the Convair F-102 or F-106). It's probably a Grumman F9F (Panther or Cougar).
