Ski Dart

January 2019

During the 1950s, the U.S. Navy saw a bright future for seaplanes in many different roles. One of the most exciting seaplane designs was Convair's XF2Y-1 Sea Dart, a jet-propelled fighter that took off from and landed on water. The Sea Dart first flew, inadvertently and unofficially, on 14 January 1953. It was the first and only supersonic seaplane, exceeding Mach 1 in a shallow dive. Five Sea Darts were built (one crashed), but the program was eventually cancelled, along with the rest of the U.S. Navy's seaplane designs.

Note: Each month a different image from the current calendar year is featured here. To avoid the gnawing 12-month period of suspense to see all 12 pieces (along with lots of aviation anniversaries (When did the first pig fly?), incredible trivia (What is Godzilla's "birthday"?), and outrageous quotes from people that should know better) place your order for the Aerocatures™ Calendar now!
