More > Bob Rahn set a speed record of 728 mph on a 100 km course — a mark that would not be eclipsed for five years. Troubles with powerplants resulted in delays with the F4D entering service. When it finally came on line in 1956, it was generally met with enthusiasm. It had wonderful rates of roll and climb, the latter being of some import for its planned mission: high-altitude interception. Yet the plane’s short range, awkward handling characteristics, and inherent instability made it somewhat ill-suited for carrier use. Although 420 “Fords” were built by 1958, they were withdrawn in 1964. Originally printed by Douglas and the U.S. Navy, this handbook provides a fascinating glimpse inside the cockpit of this plane.
