    Grumman F9F-8T Cougar

    The newest addition to the Hickory Aviation Museum here in NC is this Grumman F9F-8T Cougar two seat trainer, BuNo 142985. It had been on display at Moton Field in Tuskegee, Alabama, but was acquired by the museum, and it arrived earlier this week. It's in rough shape, but all the pieces are there, and the folks at Hickory will look after her. I was out to the museum today and grabbed some shots.













    I hope to post more photos as she is reassembled and cleaned up for display.

    John, This is HKY?
    I stopped off at Hickory in 2010/11 shot a Fire bomber there and the museum had some nice pieces. Did you see the Fedex Fokker there?
