The unusual and innovative swing-wing Jaguar program ended up being a one airplane project even though during its development, orders were placed for one hundred and twelve aircraft. That ship, BuNo 124435, would only be flown by one pilot, Corwin "Corky" Meyer. When the program concluded in 1953 after over a year of flight testing, the flight test example 124435 along with the number two ship 124436, which was some 90% complete, were shipped to the Naval Air Material Center, Philadelphia, for use in testing barriers and barricades. The static test article, which was some 60% complete, was shipped to the Aberdeen Proving Ground in Maryland for use as a target.
