modern or late developments. This letter also
indicated that the Boeing Airplane Company had refused DORR
his last two requests f'or photographs.
On January 13, 1954, Confidential Informant T-1,
of known reliability, advised the writer that F. DORR,
2502 Gaither Street, s. E., Washington, D. C., believed to
be identical with one of the subjects, was the 14 year old son

Gentlemen:

I understand that the Navy's Vought F?U-3 Cutlass can now be
fueled in flight by the probe and drogue system developed by
your company. I am interested in this phase of aviation, and
I would like to have two 8 x 10 inch glossy photographic prints
showing the F?U-3 being refueled by an AJ tanker plane. If you
could send me these two photos, it would be greatly appreciated.
They will not be reproduced. Thank you.
