OT: Trying to find pilots for a project
Posted by Anonymous on Tuesday, July 22, 2003 5:43 PM
I'm not sure if this is the best place to look, but does anyone have suggestions of where to look for pilots of F3H Demons, F4D Skyrays, F5D Skylancers, F8F Bearcats, F11F Tigers, F6U Pirates, and F7U Cutlasses.

I am going to apply for an internship at the National Air & Space Museum, and I'm planning on writing about some of these lesser-known, inter-war fighters.

It would be great to find out what the pilots thought of them.

Or the old folks home.

What scale are you looking for?

Use a good search engine such as google. I just now typed in "F4D" and got
12,300 hits.

Check for pilot associations such as Tailhook, reunions of squadrons that used those types of a/c, authors who flew them or wrote about them, quoting sources.
