Courtesy Aircraft offers Two F-8 Crusader Aircraft projects

These are both disassembled and located in Arlington, WA. We have copies of military record cards but do not have complete logs. The aircraft are in stock military condition and are probably close to 100% complete including engines. There are no F-8 Crusader aircraft flying in the US at this time and it would make an outstanding warbird or flight test aircraft.

Package price $375,000
