The Vought F-8 Crusader (originally F8U) is a single-engine, supersonic, carrier-based air superiority jet aircraft built by Vought for the United States Navy and United States Marine Corps (replacing the Vought F7U Cutlass), and for the French Navy.The first F-8 prototype was ready for flight in February 1955. The F-8 served principally in the Vietnam War The F-4 was designed for a number of carrier-landings and not flight hours to remember! The intended replacement for the F-4 was the F-111 from 1964.
