    My dad was one of the designers of the XC-142. I thought the last of the films had been found in the late 1960s, but these keep showing up.

    I was just a lil' toddler when this first flew at Moffett Field. It never got into full production, however, mainly because of Viet Nam. Timing is everything...and the time just wasn't right. Alas.
