Item Name 1/100 Grumman F8F-1 Beetle Bomb
Price $0.00
Description The Grumman F8F Bearcat (nicknamed "Bear") was an American single-engine naval fighter aircraft of the 1940s. It went on to serve into the mid-20th century in the United States Navy, the United States Marine Corps, and the air forces of other nations. It would be Grumman Aircraft's final piston engined fighter aircraft. Modified versions have broken speed records for piston-engined aircraft, and are popular among warbird owners.


In 1949 a F8F-1 Bearcat "Beetle Bomb" replaced the North American SNJ in the Blue Angels aerobatic Team as a simulated enemy target. As the team transitioned to the F9F Panther in mid-1949 the F8F "Beetle Bomb" was used in a pre-show advanced aerobatic display.
