When this RF-8G dropped in at Selfridge, my guide told me that it was one of the last operational Crusaders. It had engine problems and the pilot did not want anyone close to the aircraft as he inspected it visually. The buNo is very hard to see, but at great enlargement, it can only be 146860, which was in the event the last operational US forces Crusader. It was retired to the Smithsonian on March 30, 1987 and is on display at the Udvar-Hazy museum at Dulles Airport.
