Introduction

Welcome to Forgotten Jets, my massively time-consuming obession with old military jets from the 1940s to 70s. What I'm attempting to do here is match up operational histories and photos with individual serial/bureau numbers, which is just as difficult as you might imagine (if not a million times more so).

As of this minute I am trying (and failing miserably) to keep track of 271 different subtypes of 56 types, for a grand total of about 121,482 individual airplanes. I am clearly insane...

What's new here...


May 1, 2015: Hey there! Something new, yay! I was going to space these out but I figured I'd just dump them online all at once. None of these pages are anywhere near complete, but my self-imposed deadline is up and it's time to post them. As always, my awesome readers will surely help fill in the blanks and correct my mistakes, I'm counting on it! Here are the starter pages...

McDonnell F2H Banshee

Grumman F9F Cougar

Douglas AD Skyraider

And yes, the AD is not a jet, but I'm broadening my horizons :).

January 28, 2015: To answer the question, unless things change, 2015 will be a year of 1950s US Navy carrier decks. Will probably also be the year I finally branch out into props...
