a funny anecdote about the Fairey Barracuda

Found it over at :

There is an anecdote–true or not, I don’t know–that during the war, an recently-arrived American pilot happened to see a Barracuda parked on the apron of the airfield. He walked up to and around it, examining it silently. Finally he said, “Well, it’s very interesting, but it’ll never replace the airplane!”
