Republic YRF-84F: “I’m not so sure” eyes.

1953, one of the Project FICON parasite fighter/attack/recon tests. Photo taken on the Convair GRB-36F mothership bomb bay, where the parasite fighter was installed. The “parasite” in question is the first named YF-96, later renamed XF-84F, and at this stage re-renamed YRF-84F – too many names, maybe. Basically a F-84E fuselage fitted with swept wings and tail surfaces.
