According to Joe Baugher, Convair built three XFY-1 Pogos, i.e. BuNo 138648, 138649 and 138650. He says, "Only one of the three XFY-1s actually flew. 138648 was used strictly as an engine testbed and 138650 was used only for static tests. The sole flight article (138649) was displayed for a while at NAS Norfolk, Virginia, but is now in storage at the Paul Garber restoration facility at Suitland, MD."

Many photos here, but most are turned 90-degrees from vertical!
Assuming that Joe Baugher's information is correct, i.e. that 138649 is the only one that flew, we'll assume that all of my photos, or at least those which show actual flight, are that aircraft.
