Grumman F6F-5K Hellcat: Colourful shroud.

Grumman F6F-5K Hellcat: Colourful shroud.

Hellcat radio-controlled target drones went to their afterlife boldly. A superb bunch of F6F-5K Hellcat drones during Op. Crossroads tests, Bikini Atoll Jul, 1946. These Drones were flown through the cloud formation to mesure the radioactivity.

Sad end for such glorious warriors.
