Naval Fighters # 84: Grumman JF/J2F Duck
Each issue in this series describes an individual aircraft type. Development and testing are covered as well as its service history. It is illustrated with many photographs (most of them b/w, showing detail-images from inside and outside, photographs covering development / testing and cockpit close ups), reprints from original documents (flight and maintenance manuals), as well as detail drawings, which give a good impression of the structure and the assembly of the type. Each unit in which the type saw service is presented in booklets covering post war aircraft, while the focus of those presenting WWII-types (and the ones produced before) lies in showing their structure.

Short biograhy of the aircraft type:
The JF/J2F "Duck" was one of those military workhorses moving around in the background before and during WWII which did a tremendous job but never got the publicity of its' more glamorous teammates. Some said the Duck could be more aptly named the "Ugly Duckling". Be that as it may; when no other bomber could be found, it carried bombs; when no other transport could be found, it transported; when no other photo plane could be found, it photographed and when no other rescuer could be found, it rescued. When it came to "Utility Craft", the JF/J2F was the definitive.

Illustrated throughout with contemporary photographs, detail images, excerpts from original drawings and scale drawings.
