A few more images to share concerning the V-519 White Whale. The first is an interesting from a markings standpoint with the inclusion of some distinctive VA-174 tail stripe and squadron insignia on the rudder and after of the rear cockpit. I am looking into this might have occurred during weapons or other testing of the aircraft with VA-174 as the host/testing entity.
