Opis produktu:

The full story of the Grumman Tiger and Super Tiger has only been told in part by non-Grumman aviation buffs and historians who wrote from second or third-hand information.

Although it is over forty years later, this compendium has been written and documented by the principal Grumman and Blue Angel actors who participated in the development of those fine aircraft that came upon the scene at a very difficult but interesting era for both Grumman and the Navy.

This is No. 40 in the Naval Fighters series. It is 144 page, square bound card cover. Color is restricted to the front and rear covers.

The Naval fighters titles written by Corwin "Corky" Meyer are always a treat. Not only do you get some insider insights into the development process you get a very in depth description of the flight testing. Intended to be a stopgap supersonic fighter until the more advanced Vought F8U arrived delays in development led to it being introduced almost at the same time as that aircraft so production contracts were pared back.

Meyer delivers the goods. You get a test pilot's view of area ruling, afterburners, weapons test where the F11F became the first aircraft to shoot itself down, spin testing, and inertial coupling. It becomes crystal clear why test pilots have such a high mortality rate.

Publisher Steve Ginter finishes out the text with the squadron service history of the Tiger including their most famous unit, the Blue Angels. Plastic model kits are reviewed, the Rohr thrust reverser tests are described, and F11F survivors are rounded up. The book ends with 5 pages of black and white drawings illustrating Tiger markings. The lack of color makes them less than effective for this.
