XF-15A-NO Reporter 43-8335
43-8335 was actually a P-61C-1-NO Black
Widow converted to the unarmed photo-reconnaissance
version. In the event, only 36 "true" F-15As of an order
for 175 were accepted by the USAF
before the contract was cancelled.
By 1947 jets were taking over the duties performed by this some-
aircraft. The poor image above is from a portfolio of
printed (rather than photographic)
Northrop types which
I gleaned in the late 1940s.
