|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Before i went to the Flying Legends airshow 2005, the Grumman F7F Tigercat was unknown to me. The tigercat did an absolutely fantastic show in flying and showing what this bird was capable of. Really nice aircraft.|
The T-cat was first produced in late 1944. There were built 364 and of those 6 is still airworthy.
It has Two 2,100hp Pratt & Whitney R-2800-34W Double Wasp 18-cylinder radial piston engines and with this obtains a max speed of around 700 km/h, almost as fast as the P-51D Mustang.
The aircraft had four 20mm cannons in wing roots and four 12.7mm machine guns in nose.
Good for the Germans that they didnt see to much of this one. ;)
