The XF5U model aircraft, also called the “Flying Pancake,” is a scale replica of the original plane manufactured by Vought. The Flying Pancake was designed by Charles Zimmerman as an experimental aircraft during WW II for the U.S. Navy. Because of its shape, when it was flown, there were always calls from the public about a UFO sighting. Only one was built and the final flight was on March, 15, 1947.

The XF5U model arrives completely assembled and has an attractive base for aircraft display. This authentic, extraordinary replica of the original aircraft has been faithfully reproduced with kiln dried Philippine mahogany wood. Each model is meticulously carved, hand sanded and painted following exact blueprint details of the original aircraft. The end result is a handsome, wood airplane sculpture to be admired and enjoyed.
