Satan's Kittens Gunfighter

A quickie this time 'round...

Your blogmeister has stated a number of times in the past that he rather fancies this bird or that a bit more than all the rest. Well, here's another he holds just a bit higher than the masses; the Vought F-8 Crusader... also known as the Gunfighter. And in this particular photo we see a Gunfighter from one of your blogmeister's favorite US Navy FITRONs, VF-191 Satan's Kittens, about to trap aboard the USS Oriskany, CVA-34, off the coast of California back in 1970.
