The Grumman F9F Panther was the manufacturer's first jet fighter and one of the U.S. Navy's first successful carrier-based jet fighters.The Panther was the most widely used U.S. Navy jet fighter of the Korean War, flying 78,000 sorties and scoring the first air-to-air kill by the US Navy in the war, the downing of a North Korean Yakovlev Yak-9 fighter. Total F9F production was 1,382, with several variants being exported to Argentina.  The outstanding flight characteristics qualified it as the first jet aircraft for the famous Blue Angels Navy Aerobatic team.  Airworld has developed the F9 to a scale of 1:5 from original drawings with all rivets and details, speed-brakes, dive-brakes and flaps.To help reduce building time, the air ducting and the CNC milled formers are pre-installed "in-the-mold". Easy access to the turbine is accomplished thru the removable top hatch.  As an accessory, we offer a scale retract-gear set wit a pneumatic drum brake system which has already been successfully used time and time again in Airworld’s L-39 Albatros.Full fiberglass construction, CNC milled formers and gear hard-points pre-installed,  Two-piece fiberglass wing panels with installed ioner sockets and servo mounts, Plug-in horizontal tailplane with built in servo mounts, Gap free control surfaces, Fiberglass cockpit frame,Numerous scale accessories.
