Grumman F6F-5 Hellcat US Navy VF-6 #19 Lt. Vraciu v1.0
This folder contains a repaint for the Grumman F6F-5 Hellcat by Flying Iron. It shows Grumman F6F-3 BuNo 40467 white 19, the assigned aircraft of Lt (jg) Alexander Vraciu of VF-6, based on USS Intrepid. He shot down 7 aircraft with it. Of these, he scored four in one day on 17 February 1944 near Truk. The fuselage of this aircraft somehow survived the war, and it has been mated with wings from an F6F-5 and flew with the Fighter Collection from Duxford, UK, before going back to the US in 2012, where it is currently undergoing a ground-up restoration.
