Aircraft of the Month

The Vought F-8 Crusader (originally F8U) is a single-engine, supersonic, carrier-based air superiority jet aircraft built by Vought for the United States Navy and United States Marine Corps. The first F-8 prototype was ready for flight in February 1955 and served primarily in the Vietnam War.The Crusader was the last American fighter with guns as the main weapon,earning it the title "The Last of the Gunfighters".

The last Crusader ever flown was Castle Air Museum's 145607 as a chase for the X-31 project. Photo Crusader 145607 came to Castle Air Museum in 2009, restoration was completed in 2011, and it is displayed in its VFP-63 Photo Crusader colors.
