Ok your thought. The fact is the aircraft was underpowered. So was the Demon and many other early jets. Was the F7U a sound design? Yes it probably was, biggest issue being it was built for a set engine type and had no room to modify! Did it deserve the nickname, that’s up in the air but it got it and it lasted. The Navy jets were a lot less forgivable that Air Force Jets. The Cutlass and the Demon were true demonstrations of that issue. 10 thousand feet of run way is far more forgiving than 500 feet, 4 wires, moving at thirty knots and pitching deck.Cue uninformed critique. Hopefully there will be a book out later this year to correct the plagiarised BS about the F7U.
