The Explorers' Club, № DCCV

The Convair XFY-1 "Pogo"—An experimental 1950s Vertical Take-off & Landing (V.T.O.L.) aeroplane, propelled by a turboprop engine driving contra-rotating propellers; the Pogo was designed to provide almost any ship or convoy with combat air patrol protection, to be housed on-deck under a conical cover; three prototypes were manufactured, but only one flew before the project was cancelled.
