The '60s were a time of transition in Naval Aviation as the first truly supersonic operational aircraft entered the fleet. Lt. Rick James had the privilege of flying the Chance Vought F8 Crusader. A miraculous aircraft for the time, it was capable of nearly mach 2 speed and was highly maneuverable. The Crusader was a match for any jet in operation at that time and the men who flew it were a select group of highly professional and courageous individuals. The stories collected here recount the experiences of the men who rose to the challenge of flying the mighty F8 Crusader in defense of our nation-men who deserve to be remembered and honored.
