    VSKYLABS XF-85 Project Announced

    VSKYLABS likes to take on unusual aircraft projects, and the XF-85 is certainly that. Designed in the 1940's as a "parasite fighter", the little jet would be carried by a bomber and take-off and return to bomber, without ever landing on the ground. Though the concept proved unworkable in the real world it should make for an interesting challenge for X-Plane pilots.
