Description

The F9F-5 Panther was primarily known as the first-carrier borne jet warplane used by the US Navy during the Korean War. It soon became clear that all the reconnaissance would need to be transferred to jet-engined reconnaissance planes in order to keep abreast of the conditions obtaining in both air and land warfare. First of all the reconnaissance plane designated the F9F-2P came into use with the US Navy. With the introduction of the more advanced F9F-2P Panther, at the same time it was decided to built a small series of 36 machines designed as reconnaissance planes for the US Marines. According to their configuration it was now possible to cover three different spheres of operation: general air reconnaissance, photography/cartography and special reconnaissance of coastlines. In May 1954, most of the F9F-5Ps were stationed at MCAS Miami, Florida.
