F-8 Crusader Model

The Vought F-8 Crusader (originally F8U) was a single-engine, supersonic, carrier-based air superiority jet aircraft built by Vought for the United States Navy and Marine Corps

In 1952, the Chance Vought Company submitted a
design in response to a Navy request for proposals to
build a supersonic daytime fighter aircraft The Navy
awarded Vought the contract on 29 June 1953. The
F8U first flew on 25 March 1955, the first delivery was
in March 1957. By the time the last delivery was made
in January 1965, 1,264 had been accepted for the
Navy, the Marine Corps and foreign military use. The
Crusader was last reported in squadron by VFP-206 on
1 April 1987 at NAF Washington, D.C. A single-seat,
single-engine daytime fighter, the F8U was distinctive
for its high wing with variable incidence to alter landing
speed. The F8U was redesignated F-8 in 1962.
