McDonnell XP 67


FS2002/FS2004 McDonnell XP-67. The XP-67 was twin-engine interceptor that had a somewhat revolutionary design by McDonnell Aircraft. When viewed from above the aircraft had an unusual profile, in that the engine nacelles and fuselage were shaped to provide true aerofoil sections throughout. The exhaust gases from the turbo-supercharged Continental engines were used as a jet-assist to increase performance. however, the rated horsepower of the "Hyper" engines was not achieved and the aircraft fell short of performance estimates. Performance proved to be far from satisfactory, and modifications were made to improve certain stability problems. The aircraft was destroyed in a fire on 6 September 1944 and the project was canceled before the second aircraft was built. by Kazunori Ito.
