The Hughes XF-11 was an experimental 1940s reconnaissance aircraft by Hughes aircraft. A crash in 1946 nearly killed the test pilot Howard Hughes.[1] This 1946 version had 2 counter-rotating props powered by 2 piston engines, which is the Flightgear version.

Note that the designation is not part of the later F-# fighter sequence; in that sequence see Grumman F-11 Tiger (formerly F11F Tiger under the Navy's designation before 1962).
