A Virtual Cemetery created by Jack Williams

F8 Crusader pilots and maintainers

This site is dedicated to the pilots and maintainers of the Chance-Vaught F8 Crusader fighter. The F-8 Crusader was the last U.S. fighter designed with guns as its primary weapon. U. S. fighter aircraft are once again being fitted with guns, largely due to the Vietnam air war experience. Missile-only aircraft were at a distinct disadvantage in the environment many thought passé --- the dogfight. The Crusader with its guns, and Crusader drivers well versed in dogfighting, led to a resurgence in gun-equipped aircraft, and a renewed emphasis in ACM -- Air Combat Maneuvering.
