Project Extraversion
« on: October 14, 2008, 03:46:49 PM »
Hi all,

Here the Airfix F-80C modified into a YP-80A of the Project Extraversion which consisted to send American jets in England and Italy, in Aptil 1945, to combat test the YP-80A and to rebuild the sagging morale of bomber crews that faced the German jets threat every day.
Both aircraft sent to England never worked well, one being totally destroyed, the other having her engine changed against a Rolls-Royce jet engine.
The two sent to Italy worked very well and at the end of the war were acquired by 1st FG who marked them as on the model kit.

I was looking for this subject for a long time. Any service record, any air kills? No need to tell that model is beautiful :)
