How are the mighty fallen! When she entered service in 1961 as an F-8E Crusader she was the ultimate all-weather shipboard fighter. Later converted to the F-8J mark this "Gunfighter" would have been ultimately replaced by the F-4 Phantom and put into storage in MASDC. In late 1987 she was sold on to the UAC scrapyard where she was reduced to a hulk when this photo was taken in late 1999.
