Grumman Tiger

While never really successful as a US Navy carrier fighter, the Tiger served as the mount for the Blue Angels for many years.

A real beaut of a fighter, so good looking and yet perhaps being as famous as it deserved to be.

I have always liked the Tiger's lines; I suspect part of the issue was that service-standard aircraft may have been underpowered; free from an ordnance load and external stores, they were certainly good enough for aerobatics.

Really? I didn't know that. Have a citation for it?
