Naval Fighters # 87: Vought F8U-3 Crusader III - Super Crusader
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.

The Vought XF8U-3 Crusader III was an aircraft developed by Chance Vought as a successor to the successful F-8 Crusader program and as a competitor to the F-4 Phantom II.
Though based in spirit on the F8U-1 and F8U-2, and sharing the older aircraft's designation in the old Navy system, the two aircraft shared few parts.

175 b/w-images, 4 color photos on the front and back cover.
