I created this image of a F-8f Bearcat for the father of a friend. During WW II he flew many aircraft but his all time favorite was the F-8f Bearcat. At 97 he is still a fighter pilot at heart, driving his car like he flew his aircraft; fast and low—much to the dismay of his daughter! The image of the Bearcat was captured at Tacoma Washington’s McChord Field during an air show. The background image of the Battleship USS Wisconsin BB 64 was taken by my father some where in the Atlantic in 1952 or early in 1953.
