Grumman TF9J COUGAR
BuNo 147276 painted as BuNo 142470 one of the two TF9J to serve the Blue Angels as Navy 7

 

After the Hurricane in 2007 the Museum is painting her but I think she is going back to feel colors, even though she came into the fleet as a Blue Angel.

 Here's Navy 7 "the Coug" doing her job. The only difference is the refueling probe, which the training command took off. This aircraft is on the USS Lexington. It is the actual Cougar used by the Blue Angels during the "Tiger Era" from 1957-68.
