‘F-52’ planes Trump boasted of selling to Norway only exist in the ‘Call of Duty’ video game

President Donald Trump this week boasted of delivering “F-52” jets to the Norwegian government — however, it turns out there is no such thing as an F-52.

Trump has lost all contact with reality on that one.

Bell XP-52

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
XP-52
Bell XP-59 wind tunnel model 060913-F-1234P-012.jpg
A wind tunnel model of the XP-59
Role Fighter
Manufacturer Bell Aircraft Corporation
Status Cancelled October 1940 (XP-52)
Cancelled 25 November 1941 (XP-59)
Number built None

The Bell XP-52 and subsequent XP-59 were World War II fighter aircraft design projects by the American Bell Aircraft Corporation.

Both projects featured a twin-boom layout with a rear-mounted engine driving pusher contra-rotating propellers.

When the XP-59 project was cancelled the designation XP-59A was used as a cover for a secret jet fighter prototoype, which would enter production as the P-59 Airacomet.

And your point is...?

The F-52s that Trump claimed to have sold to Norway are fictional. Your post about XP-52s says those planes were a project, none built, So Trump couldn't have sold those either.

Hey, give the guy a break.  Maybe he was reading this Wikipedia article and got the numbers mixed up.  After all, 25 and 52 can look the same to old folks.
