The Rare Bear is a 1946 built Grumman F8F Bearcat. It has been restored, substantially modified and equipped with a Wright R3350 engine producing in excess of 4000 horsepower. This has allowed the Rare Bear to establish the Closed Course World Speed Record (528.3 MPH) and 3000 Meter Time-To-Climb Record (91.9 seconds) and to win the Reno Air Race 2004! May we call it 'the fastest propeller driven aircraft in the world?'
