    F-9 Cougar over Malta

    Never did it occur to me that these aircraft had ever passed, or been seen, over our island! Sad Sad

    Two Grumman F9F-8P Cougar aircraft (Nos. 144416 and 144417) of photo reconnaissance squadron VFP-62 Det. 43 Fighting Photos flying over Malta in 1958. VFP-62 Det. 43 was assigned to Carrier Air Group Three (CVG-3) aboard the aircraft carrier USS Saratoga (CVA-60) during a deployment to the Mediterranean Sea from 01 Feb to 01 Oct 1958.
