From Home of M.A.T.S.:
This photo was taken in May, 1968 when Grumman hosted an air show at Calverton, NY, featuring the Blue Angels in one of their last appearances in a Grumman fighter. Other Warbird owners were invited to attend. Leading the formation is: G-32A (Mr. Grumman’s Red Ship), FM-2 Wildcat, F6F-5 Hellcat, G-58A (privately-owned F8F-2 Bearcat), F9F-8T Cougar (#7 Blue Angel, used for demo rides, etc.), and F11F-1 Tiger (#1 Blue Angel).
Now that’s a Veterans Day parade if I ever saw one.
