Ginter Books 092 Grumman F6F HellcatThe Grumman F6F Hellcat was a carrier-based fighter aircraft developed to replace the earlier F4F Wildcat in United States Navy service. Although the F6F resembled the Wildcat, it was a completely new design powered by a powerful 2,000 hp Pratt & Whitney R-2800 radial engine. The book's first 60 pages cover development and testing and were written by Grumman test pilot Corky Myers. The text goes on to examine the aircraft's technical particulars, systems, armament, marking conventions and color schemes. Also includes the day-to-day operational history of were and with what squadron the Hellcat served plus a short summary of the F6F's various opponents. A compelling look at the Hellcat - inside and out revealing the aircraft in great detail - generously illustrated with more than 650 b/w and 5 color photos accompanied by detailed diagrams and drawings. Naval Fighters No 92; Ginter and Meyer; 224 pages.
