Grumman F11F-l (F-11) Tiger

The F11F (former F9F-9) was a very elegant shipboard fighter from Grumman. It served only a short time with the fleet, because it was overtaken by the rapid developments of that time: the F11F was a pure daylight fighter. The Navy acrobatic team, the 'Blue Angels', flew the F11F for a much longer period. The 'Super Tiger' development with a J79 engine, was promising, but found no customers. Built almost 200 aircraft.
