History:

Perhaps the best-performing piston fighter ever, the F8F began as a project to provide the WWII fleet with a rapid-climb interceptor to replace the F6F Hellcat. Powered by the same Pratt & Whitney 2800 engine as the Hellcat, the empty weight is approximately a ton less allowing a record-setting time-to-climb to 10,000 feet in under 100 seconds. While the aircraft did not see combat in WWII, it was the first featured aircraft of the post-war, newly formed Blue Angels and continued in active service well into the turbine era.
