Product information "GulfHawk II"

The standard F3F-1 of the period had a two-blade propeller but the new aircraft was fitted with a three-blade Hamilton Standard propeller of 9ft diameter. With this power plant on board the aircraft could achieve speeds of close to 300 mph and could climb at 2,000 feet per minute. Impressive performance for 1936!

Delivered to the Gulf Oil Company, the aeroplane was flown extensively by Major Al Williams, Gulf’s chief test pilot, to demonstrate the new techniques employed in tactical dive-bombing. Dubbed ‘Gulfhawk II’, the aircraft and its pilot toured the USA and Europe demonstrating high-speed aerobatics and precision flying.

In 1943, the duo was requested by General ‘Hap’ Arnold to make a three-month tour of US airfields to demonstrate airmanship and precision flying. The aircraft made its last demonstration flight in 1948 before being retired to the Smithsonian in Washington D.C. The glossy, brightly painted orange machine still hangs there as a reminder of those barnstorming days.

The F3F-1 evolved into the F3F-3 and became the Navy’s last biplane fighter. It was used to train many of the young pilots destined to become aces in the Second World War.
