Why the US Navy complained about being bullied by NASA fighter pilots in the air

Recommended Posts

It’s hard to know which scenario is more bizarre: NASA having fighter pilots, NASA bullying naval aviators, or the Navy actually admitting to being bullied by those fighter pilots so they’d stop. All three really happened – and it started when the Navy wanted to replace its vaunted F-8 Crusader air superiority fighter.

Vought’s award-winning F-8 Crusader was one of the longest-serving airframes in American military history, so replacing it was going to be tough for anyone who tried.
