224 pp, 8vo (8 3/4" H). B&w photographs. "Described as a 'thoroughbred' worthy of all the care it demanded, the Chance Vought F-8 Crusader served as one of the most capable and long-lived aircraft in naval aviation history. It was designed as an air superiority fighter, a 'gunfighter' armed with four 20-mm cannon rather than air-to-air missiles. Eventually, the Navy adapted the Crusader to carry many other kinds of armament. It also served in other roles such as photo recce, strike, and experimental. Features (of this book) are: a design and construction history of the F-8; F-8 armaments; Vietnam operations including a chapter devoted to MiG battles; extensive appendices that furnish details of F-8 deployment, pilots and engineering; over 70 photos." Light edge wear to boards. Dust jacket has light browning at edges, very light rubbing, slight fading to spine color.
