    Abstract : The Model GA-468 Inflatoplane is a single-place,

    inflatable aircraft designed as an escape and evasion, limited

    reconnaissance and downed pilot rescue vehicle. The project was

    cancelled prior to receipt of a test aircraft by the Marine Corps

    Landing Force Development Center; consequently, the suitability

    of the Inflatoplane to perform the above missions was not

    demonstrated. The monitoring of the test activity conducted

    elsewhere hs led to the recommendation that no further

    consideration be given to the use of the Model-GA-468

    Inflatoplane by the Marine Corps.
