Hmm, I thought it looked familiar, I guess with some investigating I should've recognized the trademark design from Republic, is it a prototype?

In any case, here's what I found (and I hope it's not already posted in the this topic).

Sorry Franklin, i missed your quetion, yes it was one of two prototyes they were experimenting with different wing designs and mixed propulsion, here is another pic of it showing the unusual wing it had....

Aye one of the XF-91's only lasted 90 seconds before it crashed.........sounds like one of my flights with a new R/C p51 that only lasted 10 seconds  :-\

Well done indeed, it is indeed a Genesis 2 from what I found on Airliners.net. That's also how I'd like my dream plane designed, cockpit in the front, and slightly forward sweeping mid-mounted wings behind the cockpit canopy to give maximum visibility. Of course my dreamplane would be a 2-seater (side by side) and be powered and slightly longer.

A shame about the jet (thanks for the pm), at least the pilot survived :)
