Urban dictionary defines a t!ts machine as:
An awesome vehicle. A behemoth in spirit but not necessarily in size.
Vought’s F-8 Crusader certainly fits that description. Being a single seat, single engine airplane ‘Sader drivers regarded themselves as the only true inheritors of the fighter pilot spirit, especially when the dual seat/dual engine Phantom came on the scene. Needless to say, the rivalry between the 2 communities is the stuff of legend in the NAVAIR community.
Anyway here’s a collection of ‘Sader photos, some of which haven’t been published before. Enjoy.
