Had a friend who was a test pilot in the Navy starting in 1942. He flew every fighter / attack aircraft from the P-39 / F4F era up through the F-94. He didn’t like the F8F, and he really disliked the F7F. His all-time favorite, for flying qualities, was the Single Place AD, aka SPAD.My buddy who flew the cats said the Bearcat was his favorite also.
Yup, and he does a really good job. But Bevo was the best of all time.Have you watched Dave Martin snapping his Jungmeister?
