This was the stuff of enthusiasts' visions growing up in the 1950s and -60s, with its smooth, clean lines and rakish wings and empennage... The Whale was undoubtedly a handsome, aesthetically pleasing design, and the sight of it seemed to embody the futuristic outlook of its time. It was a great opportunity to visit this example on the NAS Atlanta t-line, with its colors and markings virtually unchanged from the 50s! A trainer version, it was assigned to VAQ-33 Firebirds at Key West.
