Best name ever for a jacket model. I love it. True art.

While not a particularly good photo the squadron (VA-55 Warhorses with FJ Fury in the background) is seen below. Father is seen wearing the checkered arm band denoting the OD.

This pic was taken in 1958. Not long after transitioning from the the propeller driven AD Skyraider to the FJ Fury.

The USN Fury came equipped with 20 mm cannons. Not the .50 cals and more powerful engines than used on the F-86 Sabre jet and USAF equivalent.

Cheers, Dave
