By CHARLES A. SCHAAF

The Fletcher FL-23 was built in 1949 to compete for a contract for a new liaison plane then being sponsored by the U.S. Air Force. In the competitive evaluations, it was in a leading position until the government test pilot, in a violent maneuver, managed to detach the stabilizer from the rest of the aircraft. He then left the aircraft in something of a hurry. Surprisingly, the airplane glided back to the ground in an inverted position and was not seriously damaged! The builders were given sixty days to rebuild the aircraft for further consideration, but were unable to meet the dead line. As a result, the Cessna entry won the contest and became the ubiquitous Bird Dog that we see today.
