Delivering the Mail

In this installment of 'TWW' we bring you a super-groovy shot of a brand-spankin' new Republic F-84F Thunderstreak opening a can-o-whoopass on some unsuspecting, uh... sand and scrub... in the Mojave Desert. (just pretend it's unsuspecting Commie sand and scrub) Included below the photo is a way-cool facsimilified-copy of the news tag from the reverse of the print that your blogmeister whipped up in Photoshop because he was bored and too lazy to type it all out...

Two Ghost Riders and a Tiger

In this installment of our little cyber-rag, we present a gorgeous shot showing an AD-2 or AD-3 of VA-195 'Tigers', moments away from leaving the deck of USS Boxer (CV-21). Waiting their turn off to port is a pair of F8F-1 Bearcats of VF-193 'Ghost Riders'. The photo was taken during CVG-19's NorPac cruise which ran from January 13th to February 25th, 1949.
