    F7F-2N Tigercat BuNo 80323 from VF(N)-52 as seen during carrier qualifications on board the USS Antietam April 1945

    The Tigercat was a bit too late to see combat during the war but it came close. VMF(N)-531, the first unit to fly the F7F-2N had shipped out for combat duty in the Pacific in July 1945 and their ship was nearing Guam when the first atomic bomb was dropped.

    Tigercat turned out beautifully! Interesting to see how thin the fuselage is on this airplane.
