Topic: P-61 Black Widow with missile


I share with you some pictures showing a flying P-61 with a missile under the fuselage. Does anyone know what kind of missile is this and was used operationally? The link also contains photographs of the plane now testing some kind of jet engine. Photos can be viewed by visiting the link below:

The missile looks to be a PTV-N-2 Gorgon IV air to air missile which was being tested from the mid 1940s until the early 1950s and was not used operationally to my knowledge.

The engine is an experimental airfoil-type ramjet on a P-61B in 1947.
