—Air Power Park Tour —First proposed in December of 1945, the F-89 Scorpion was designed as a replacement for the P-61 Black Widow. The first flight was on August 16, 1948. A novel design of the aircraft was the use of "decelerons," split ailerons that could be opened to act as speed breaks. A total of 1,050 of these two-seat, all-weather interceptors were built.
