A lovely airplane, and a friend of mine was plane captain on one of the last F-8s when VF-84 retired them.

Yes, my buddy was one of the last to crew the Crusader, but I got his squadron wrong. I typed VF-84 but Joe was really with VF-24, flying from U.S.S. Hancock.

Hancock was scheduled to be retired from service and VF-24 was to retire the F-8 at the same time but they were ordered on one last cruise which ended in 1975. Both airplanes and carrier were then retired. However, there were parts of two squadrons that still flew a little while longer on U.S.S. Oriskany into '76.
