BuNo 138187 was one of two Prototypes that were built as "C" models and was not converted, it was produced at NAA Ingleside Calf plant and flown to NATC for trials

Grumman F9F-3 Panther (BuNo. 122562) operated by the Naval Air Test Center at Patuxent River, Maryland (USA).  This aircraft was fitted with an experimental electro-hydraulically driven Emerson Aero X17A roll-traverse turret housing four 12.7 mm machine guns, in 1950. The idea was that the aircraft could destroy enemy bombers while avoiding the fire of the tail gunner.  The guns could be directed at any angle from directly forward to 20 degrees aft, and the gun mount could roll 360 degrees.  The roll rate was 100 degrees per second, and the guns could be traversed at up to 200 degrees per second. Unfortunately, the volume required for the fire control system avionics, and the sheer weight of the turret, made it impractical for single-seat fighters and the program was cancelled in early 1954.

The aircraft was seriously underpowered and the J40 was prone to inflight explosions and sudden failures.  All F3H-1Ns were permanently grounded in July 1955 and the surviving airframes were either used as ground trainers or scrapped. 133489 first flew on 24 December 1953 and was used for service evaluation at the Naval Air Test Center, Patuxent River, Maryland, in 1954.

An Italian Air Force (Aeronautica Militare) F-35A Lightning II aircraft made aviation history as it completed the very first F-35 trans-Atlantic Ocean crossing, arriving at Naval Air Station Patuxent River, Maryland, from Cameri Air Base, Italy, on 5 Feb 2016.  F-35A aircraft AL-1, the first international jet fully built overseas at the Cameri Final Assembly & Check-Out (FACO) facility at Cameri Air Base, Italy, is also the first F-35 assembled outside of the U.S. to land on U.S. soil. 

North America is replete in aviation history, both military and civilian. The sheer size of the United States dictated an early interest in air defense and profoundly influenced the nation's dependence on air travel. It is no wonder that the United States developed as an "air-faring" nation. A large part of the leadership that contributed to that development can be traced to America's Air Force. Indeed, its proud military heritage is embodied in the dedicated individuals who have served and continue to do so - and in the marvelous aircraft they have flown.

The preservation and public display of these aircraft is a labor of love for many, including the editor of this book. If you are an enthusiast of military aviation history, or one with a passing interest who simply wishes to learn more, you will find a wealth of information in these well-researched pages.
