Left, the Bell FM-1 Airacuda was designed around two 37mm M4 cannon in the engine nacelles and their gunnery control system. [26]
The most famous example of such a fighter is the Bell FM-1 Airacuda, a twin-engined aircraft first flown in 1937. The FM-1 was a low-wing monoplane with pusher propellers, driven by turbosupercharged Allison V-1710 engines. This arrangement left room for a 37mm M4 cannon in the nose of each engine nacelle, hydraulically controlled, with a coaxial machinegun to assist in aiming. A gunner in the nose of the FM-1 used a Sperry autopilot, a fire control system originally developed for anti-aircraft cannon, and an optical sight to aim these weapons. Impressive it was, but nobody could find a real need for it, or invent the tactics for its use; and the FM-1 faded into obscurity. There were attempts to revive the concept, for example the British Vickers 414, armed with a 40mm Vickers S cannon, but they remained paper designs.
Your right it was as clear as a BELL!!!!!!!!

Right on! Good job! Here is the assessment from Walter Boyne's site, where I found this:

www.air-boyne.com/images_e.htm

The Bell Airacuda was a brilliant attempt by Bell to break into the airplane business by building something different--a long range multi-place interceptor. The great Ben Kelsey was behind the airplane, and did the first test flights, just as he did with the P-38. He was a Lieutenant at the time, but had more authority than many generals do today. The Airacuda looked good, but it had too much drag, the engines were almost impossible to keep cool, and escape in an emergency would be problematical. Most went out of service with a handful of hours logged. Ben was a good friend of mine later in life, and a fund of information.

This is Jeffrey's dad, The Wilsons huh? Lets see..... Barracuda came out in 1977 when I was in 8th grade. Heart was and is a great group. At the time I was into KISS, and "Seriously" into Boston who had released their first album in 1976. I still carry that CD in my truck today. I roll up the windows to not annoy the neighbors and I crank that volume to max for Boston. I also like Led Zep, Rush, Pink Floyd, Molly Hatchet, The Dead, ( I'm a pseudo Dead-Head),etc... They just dont make rock like they used to.

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh memories!
I saw Boston at The Rainbow Theatre in Finsbury Park, London in about 1978 during the Don't Look Back Tour.
They still weren't very well known here and I'd bought the tickets after hearing one of the tracks in a [i]"record shop"[i].
Cost me £15.00 each (at the time about $4 to $45.
Someone offered me £250.00 for them as we were going through the doors.
The Rainbow, despite having HUGE street cred. (Hendrix set light to his guitar there, Queen, Genesis, everyone played there), was a small venue. Inside there was room for maybe 12-1500 people seated.
It was HEAVING and the band were brilliant.
They sounded exactly the same as their records. Note perfect, even the musical effects were spot on. And this in the days when someone miming would have had their legs pulled off.

The Rainbow' a church now.
Some might say it's a shame. Some might say it's appropriate.
Smile

Jeff, if you're ever in the U.K., my old C.O. (EURO_ACBrit1) performs with a band called 'ShineOn'. They're generally recognised as the top Floyd Tribute band and just starting to get press and t.v. coverage.

I saw a P Floyd tribute band back in 86-87 that I think was called "First Light", they were REAL good as well. They played at Ohio University in Athens Ohio. My first concert was new England, UFO, and Cheap Trick all together. I saw P.Floyd at the Cleveland Colisium in 87. Grateful Dead at Legend Valley (might have a new name now) in 1988, awsome show! Worst show ever was Ted Nugents "Intensity in Ten Cities" tour. He passed out on stage in the middle of Wango Tango. Band kept playing and as he slowly got up he started singing Cat Scratch Fever instead. Lots of Booing, sad, I like Ted.
