Janet’s F4F Wildcat

This Parkzone Grumman F4F-3 Wildcat is modeled on Lt Butch O’Hare’s Hellcat F-3 – in whose honor in 1947, Orchard Depot Airport in Chicago was renamed O’Hare Airport.  Lt O’Hare is credited with five kills of enemy bombers shown on the flank of the cockpit by 5 Japanese flags and the rest of the model is just as detailed, bearing the Felix the Cat insignia of his squadron.

Harold took her up for her Maiden Flight, and she handled the choppy winds very well.  I look forward to having my first flight with her soon.
