F8F-1D Bearcat N3351
This F8F Bearcat was billed as a sort of "light-weight"
Hellcat, but this shot, taken at Van Nuys
1963, still gives this formidable ex-US
Navy fighter a rather brutish look! Formerly BuAer
originally civilianized as N6624C. It assumed the identity N3351
late 60s it became N9G, an identity it retains today in its residentcy
at the Kalamazoo
