  • Description

    An amusing display by the new Army observation plane "Mohawk" on Long Island, New York, U.S.A. was watched by two hundred high-ranking American officers recently.

    This Grumen Aircraft-designed plane with two prop-jet engines has an unusually low stalling speed and takes off at a very steep angle, enabling it to operate from very small fields.

    The Army Chief of Research and Development, Lieutenant-General Arthur G. Trudeau after watching its performance from another "Mohawk", said that it is equipped for visual and photographic observation and location of targets in all weathers.

    The "Mohawk", first U.S. Army plane powered by prop-jets is the biggest aeroplane ever to enter American Army service.
