Watched a movie yesterday The Men of the Fighting Lady on TCM while eating lunch.  1950's era flic that would not past muster today - Wingman guides blinded pilot back to carrier for a landing and survives - Ya right.

But the flying sequences of the F9 were spectacular.  To my mind one of the cleanest designs of that time.  I used to watch them while stationed at Pensacola take off and land.  Grumman's first jet and the first jet that the Blue Angels flew.

Neil Armstrong's plane. I love that era of jets as well as the F-9 Cougar. Tip tanks were the trademark of these planes such as the P-80 Shooting Star.

Yes, the F-9 designation was shared with the swept wing Cougar, only Naval aircraft to do so.

The F9F-8T was widely used at Pensacola.
