An amazing aircraft for when it was designed... essentially obsolete by the time the Navy received the production models. (typical of our extended procurement process)

Used "boost tabs" resulting in very low force needed on the control stick without hydraulics.

Nice! Yeah, those Hinton's are livin' the life! He probably parked that and had to hurry over to fly a Mustang or Corsair, then an F-86...
