This is the increddible Convair XFY-1 Pogo. It was planned to be a carrier-based VTOL interceptor for the US NAVY. Built and flown in the 1955's it was the first 'tail-sitter'-VTOL which ever made full transitions from vertical start to horizontal flight and back again.
As it was in general an very successfull construction with a top-speed of almost 1000 km/h (about 620 mph) it never made it into mass production.
One of the reasons for that was the extreme handling skills that were required for the pilots to be able to land backwards on a moving ship.

Must have been funny! Very Happy
