  No. 02SA293. In the Matter of the Application for Water Rights of Peter Vought and the Stucker Mesa Domestic Pipeline ...
Vought’s application claims that he used the spring water for his livestock since 1970, and he intended since 1970 to build a house on the land and use spring water for a domestic supply.
Vought testified that he intended since 1970 to build a house on the property and use water from the springs for a domestic supply to it.
Vought argues that the Stucker Mesa applications are void, or voidable, for trespass and Stucker Mesa did not prove it can and will appropriate the water with diligence and within a reasonable time, because Stucker Mesa does not currently have legal access to the springs.

 MITEM Case Study - Vought Aircraft Industries
Vought's goal was to create greater efficiencies in process planning by reducing the number of screens a planner had to navigate, providing drop-down tables that define various codes, implementing rules-based selection of data codes, and allowing access to other systems without exiting the planning system.

 The Vought F8U-1(F-8A) Crusader
The Vought F8U Crusader was the first U.S.Navy aircraft capable of sustained supersonic flight and was the first Navy fighter capable of exceeding 1000 mph (1,609 km/h) in level flight.
During takeoff or landing, the angle of incidence could be increased by seven degrees, which enabled the wing to retain a high-angle of attack during takeoff and landing, and yet enabled the fuselage to remain fairly level for better forward visibility.
During 1966, Vought instituted a major re-manufacturing programme in which earlier Crusaders were to be modernized, re-equipped, and re-manufactured to bring them up to contemporary standards and increase their service lives.

 Vought V-173 / XF5U-1 Flying Flapjack Info   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
One of the most unusual aircraft ever designed for the U.S. Navy was the Chance Vought V-173, also known as the Zimmerman "Flying Pancake".
Mock-ups of the XF5U-1 were done in the summer of 1943, but due to Vought's preoccupation with the Corsair and Kingfisher, the program proceeded slowly during the war.
The arrival of the jet age saw the cancellation of the XF5U-1 contract by the Navy in March 1947, despite the fact that the aircraft was due to take its first test flight later that year.

 More information about the Vought OS2U KingFisher   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
Layout of the fuselage was similar to that employed in the biplane scouts, as also was the use of a large single float plus underwing stabilizing floats.
On March 22, 1937, the Chance Vought Company (then of East Hartford, CT) received a contract for a single XOS2U-1, which was intended as a replacement for older Vought and Curtiss biplanes that were still serving the fleet.
After Vought delivered 158 improved 052U-2s with R-985-50 engines, and was working on 1,006 longerrange 052U-3s, the U.S. Naval Aircraft factory in Philadelphia, PA, built 300 052U-3s as '052N-1" (the Navy had built a single XOSN-1 biplane of its own design there in 1938; hence the "052N-1" designation).

As one of the largest aerostructure subcontractors in the world, Vought Aircraft Industries Inc. had a good handle on its direct manufacturing costs as it serves giant aircraft manufacturers like Boeing, Lockheed Martin, and Northrop Grumman.
