Riverside Airshow 2006
US Navy Heritage Flight

This year's Navy heritage flight featured the F-18 Hornet with the Grumman F4F Wildcat and the F6F Hellcat. The F=18 is from the US Navy's VFA-125  Strike Fighter Squadron "The Rough Raiders" based at NAS Lemoore. This F4F Wildcat is really an FM-2 (made by General Motors) and has markings of the British Royal Navy. The British called it the Martlett. The F6F is wearing the colors of David McCampbell's "Minsi III". David McCampbell was the US Navy's top ace of WWII with 34 kills.
