Chance Vought F6U Pirate
Naval Fighters Vol. 9

Koehnen. The F6U was developed in response to the U.S. Navy's need for its first  carrier-based jet fighter. Competing against McDonnell's F2H Banshee and North  American's FJ-1 Fury, the Pirate never saw full deployment and in fact all 30 airframes built achieved total air time of only 945 hours. Nevertheless, this is an  interesting story of "figuring out the jets." 34 pgs., 55 photos and many original engineering drawings. 8½"x 11", sfbd.     #0003308

Filled with archival images, this volume examines the design, development, and operational history of those 1950s, all-weather F2H-3/4 fighters. 176 pages, 150+ B&W photographs and illustrations, 8"x 11", softcover.
