Boeing XP-4

The last aircraft built by Boeing against an order for 30 PW-9 single-seat fighters was retained by the company at the request of the USAAC for trials with a turbo-supercharged version of the 510hp Packard 1A-1500 water-cooled engine (utilised by the FB-2). The USAAC also requested an increase in wing area, because of the higher weights involved, and while the standard PW-9 upper wing was retained, an enlarged lower wing was introduced, resulting in an equi-span biplane with vertical N-type interplane struts. The standard PW-9 armament of two 7.62mm synchronised machine guns was augmented by a pair of similar-calibre weapons mounted beneath the lower wing outside the propeller arc. With these changes the aircraft was designated XP-4 (Model 58), and delivered on 27 July 1926, but the 6.32m2 increase in gross wing area by comparison with the PW-9 failed to compensate for the 370kg increase in loaded weight. The XP-4 proved to possess extremely unsatisfactory handling characteristics and after a few hours flying the test programme was abandoned.

I am so happy to have consulted RAPID RESCORE CREDIT for my credit repairs. I discovered that I had 5 negative items on my credit most especially IRS, delayed payments and loans and over 7 hard inquiries from every bureaus and it hindered me from moving forward in my business. I could not access any loan so I started looking for ways to salvage my condition, I then discovered this specialist (RAPID RESCORE CREDIT) on reddit though there were other ones there but my instinct directed me towards Mr Jackson. I was asked for funds to get started with the job and I gave them the benefit of doubt and made some commitments. My fico score was moved from 609 to an excellent score (799) and all the negatives were deleted from my report. Right now I have a clean profile with wonderful trade lines. I’m recommending their services to anyone in dire need of credit fix, you can reach them via JACKSONRAPIDCREDITSCORE@GMAIL.COM

I strongly JERRYLINK CREDIT GROUP: I think they are the best in terms of credit repair. I had worked with different credit companies in the past, but there was no significant change on my credit report. So many credit forums recommended DYI, I tried every credit hack in the book all o no avail. A real estate agent introduced me to Mr. Jerry, who has been helping his clients. Mr. Jerry and his team helped me erase all the negative things on my report, and raised my score to excellent score across all three bureaus. I’m recommending as promised. They are available on gmail: JERRYLINKGROUP AT GMAIL DOT COM or +16265140620
