A new article has been posted at RetroMechanix.com presenting a very rare 51 page document on the Fisher P-75 Eagle:



It contains numerous high resolution detail photos and drawings of this flawed but interesting aircraft, one of a handful of types powered by the mighty 24 cylinder Allison V-3420. Many of the photos are heavily retouched and portray an intermediate configuration between the original XP-75 and the final P-75A, retaining the Douglas-style tail of the former but having the bubble canopy of the latter. Ideal information for the modeler, historian, or general enthusiast wishing to get an in depth look at GM's failed foray into fighter aircraft design.
