Ginter Books - Air Force Legends: North American F107A
North American's oft-forgotten F-107A remains perhaps the most enigmatic of the famous early "Century Series" fighters. The enigma stems from the fact that it was an outstanding and extraordinarily effective war-plane and was, perhaps, the best airplane in the world for its particular job at the time of its late 1956 first flight; mysteriously, it was never to go into production, even in light of its superior capabilities. The F-107A scored several firsts. Among them were a truly unique flight control system, an advanced inlet system, and the incorporation of a semi-submerged store. It was also the last of a long line of North American fighters to be built.
