Historical Information

The F7F Tigercat arrived right at the end of WWII, too late to see action against Japan - but flew some sorties a few years later during the Korean War. Only a relatively small number of these planes were built, and there are very few that survive today. The Tigercat was rendered obsolete by the arrival of the jet age, but it represented one of the highest levels of piston engine performance.

In our photo gallery we have pictures of “Big Bossman” (an immaculate F7F-4) roaring around the course at the Reno National air races.

There are four remaining Tigercats in airworthy condition.
