Grumman Goose (Naval Fighters)

The Grumman Goose book tells the story of the small twin engined utility seaplane first designed in 1937 for 10-wealthy business men to replace their Loening Air Yachts.
The reliable sturdy design soon found its way into RCAF (31), Peruvian AF (5), Portuguese Navy (12), Brazilian AF (10), Argentina (3), Paraguay (3), Sweden (1), Cuba (2), French Navy in Indochina (17), Japanese (JMSDF 4), and the British (52). In US service, the Army was the first service to receive the Goose when they took delivery of 26 OA-9s in 1938.

The US Navy also received its first Goose in 1938. 205 would be acquired by the Navy as XJ3F-1/JRF-1/JRF-1A, JRF-4, JRF-5 & JRF-6s. The Marines acquired 3 and the Coast Guard 10 which were supplemented during the war with Navy Geese.

Also covered is ski test aircraft, a VSTOL Goose, McKinnon & Volpar Geese, surplus and Catalina/Avalon Airlines Geese.

Night Cats and Corsairs - The Operational History of Grumman and Vought Night Fighter Aircraft, 1942-1953

The threat of enemy aircraft striking American naval forces at night with impunity during World War II led the Navy to seek fighter aircraft capable of stopping this threat.
Trace the history of radar-equipped night fighter aircraft produced for the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps by the American aircraft companies Grumman and Vought before the arrival of jets with nocturnal capabilities.

World War II squadrons operated night variants of the Vought F4U-2 Corsair and Grumman F6F-3/5N Hellcat while post-war night fighter units were equipped with the Grumman F7F-3N Tigercat and/or Vought F4U-5N/NL.

"Night Cats and Corsairs" contains never before published color and black and white photographs covering the night variants of the F6F Hellcat, F7F Tigercat, F4U-2 and F4U-5N/NL Corsairs.
