Overview
-

This highly anticipated special from the publishers of FlyPast and Aeroplane magazines celebrates the 80th anniversary of the first flight of the Grumman Hellcat, the fighter that dominated the air over the Pacific during the second half of World War Two. The most successful carrier-based fighter in history began life as a mere stand-in for the F4U Corsair but from its first aerial victory in October 1943 to the last over Japan minutes before the official Japanese surrender was announced, Grumman’s F6F Hellcat demonstrated its superiority to all comers. This brand-new publication celebrates the Hellcat, its actions, and its heroic pilots.
