Thank you Heatblur for making the two naval aviation aircraft that stole my heart since I was born in 1979. The Tomcat and Intruder made me love aviation.
The cat was always everyone’s favorite but for some reason I was always drawn towards the stars that are outside the spotlight. The Intruder is such an aircraft, it ain’t fancy, it ain’t as pretty as the cat, it ain’t fast, it ain’t agile but damn does it look good and it can move foam and mud.
She grows on you!
(sweet baby Jesus grand us the version that underwent SWIP so we can carry Mavericks, Harms and Harpo
